Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own estate moniker. The greater Hilltops region is renowned for elegantly structured Cabernet and Shiraz. Grove Estate go one better, they deliver harvests of the most princely Sangiovese, Nebbiolo and Barbera. Grove Estate's Flanders Fields is a decidedly Chardonnay dominant effervescent Cuvee, a true Methode Champenoise emulation of the great Crus from Cote des.. Quiet consummations of grove estate»

The greater Marlborough region has two distinct mesoclimes which grow unique styles of Pinot Gris. Vines planted to good sites in Awatere Valley are stimulated by low rainfall and strong coastal winds, intense sunshine yet cool nights. Wairau Valley offers an abundance of sunshine, long autumns and crisp cool winters. Both yield harvests of world class white wine grapes. Drift take their pick of each, to create a wine with wonderful roundness of palate, a vibrant yet elegant expression of Marlborough, replete with the essential elements of Wairau and Awatere Pinot Gris.

Parcels of Pinot Gris are separately harvested from fine vineyards in the Awatere and Wairau valleys. Fruit is crushed, chilled and lightly pressed, batches are cold settled and racked into fermenters, inoculated to choice yeasts and vinified at cool temperatures to retain optimal fruit character. Batches remain on lees for two weeks to add complexity and textural richness, before assembling into the finished wine, followed by stabilising and early to bottling to retain Marlborough vivaciousness.
Light peach yellow hue. Subtle aromas of tropical fruit, dried pears and sweet spice, complimented by hints of cinnamon and red apple. A lusciously full flavoured palate, brimming with apple and pear juice flavours over subtle lychee notes, almonds and and light spice, lingering at the finish with crisp flavours and refreshing acidity.
