Ara’s first release of Single Estate Pinot Gris 2011 has won Champion Pinot Gris at the inaugural Marlborough Wine Show held this month.

Already renown for structured Sauvignon Blanc and expressive Pinot Noir - now the first harvest of Ara’s Single Estate Pinot Gris highlights the unique ancient soils of Ara’s Wairau Valley vineyard are well suited to produce award winning Pinot Gris as well. Small parcels of fruit were selected for their structure and weight as well as their aromatics then hand harvested and gently whole bunch pressed. The result is a highly aromatic wine with a concentration of flavours distinctive of Ara’s Single Estate Wines, balanced with a wonderful minerality and crisp citrus acidity.
