The Landing’s new release wines are here, just in time for summer.
With the festive season beginning, we are excited to release our new Rosé 2017 and our first ever Pinot Gris 2017. We have already received great reviews from Raymond Chan and Sam Kim, for both wines, and we look forward to you enjoying them over the coming months.
The Landing Pinot Gris 2017
This is a soft, full and moderately deep off-dry Pinot Gris. The wine has a bright, straw- coloured appearance, lighter around the edges with a soft and voluminous nose, showing a good depth of stonefruits, fragrant florals and honeysuckle. The flavours are deep and mouth-filling, with a soft texture balanced by fresh acidity. A long-lingering, dry, textural finish carries stonefruit, floral and honey flavours.

A lovely off-dry style, the fragrant bouquet shows poached pear, rockmelon, orange peel and spice aromas, followed by a succulent palate that is elegantly weighted and smooth. The wine offers youthful fruit flavours and rounded mouthfeel, with subtle sweetness, leading to a lingering fruity finish. Sam Kim Consulting, Orbit.co.nz
The Landing Rosé 2017
Bright, light strawberry pink colour with some depth, and slight purple hues on the rim, pale- edged. The nose is fresh with light and tightly bound aromas of savoury quince, red cherry and cranberry fruit with bright red florals and subtle mouthwatering mineral notes. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has light quince and cranberry flavours, with red floral notes and thirst-quenching mineral nuances. The mouthfeel is fresh and lively, and the wine flows with good energy and zest, along a fine line of subtle textures, leading to a light, dry finish of quince and florals. Serve as an aperitif, or with antipasto, over the next two years. This dry rosé has quince, cranberry and strawberry flavours on a fresh and lively palate. Raymondchanwinereviews.co.nz
This is generously fruited and fragrant on the nose, showing red apple, raspberry, orange peel and floral characters. The palate is succulent and rounded, and offers attractive fruit intensity and silky texture, leading to a lengthy refreshing finish. Sam Kim Consulting, Orbit.co.nz
