Mount Brown Estates is named after our first vineyard in the foothills of Mount  Brown in the Waipara Valley. Our Pinot Gris was planted in 2001 and 2006.

Geographical Indicator: Waipara, North Canterbury

Source: Limeloader and Weka Gravels vineyards

Varietal Composition and viticulture

100% Pinot Gris. The vines are on well-drained sandy gravels on a warm site and  are a mix of clones: Lincoln-Berry Smith and 2/15. They were hand-thinned to  reduce the crop-load to about 3kg a vine. The grapes were harvested in April over a period of three weeks.


Most of the Pinot Gris is grown metres from the winery where all wine is made  and bottled. The wine spent a short period on yeast lees after fermentation before being stabilized, filtered and bottled.

Tasting Notes

This delicious wine is a golden colour, with upfront fruit with lovely pear and peach flavours. Some subtle quince and spice notes add to the complexity. Some residual sugar results in a medium-full palate with great texture.
