Paddy Borthwick Paper Road Pinot Gris 2020
Paddy Borthwick runs a winery and farm that’s all about family. His great-great grandfather was a pioneer in the British meat industry and the family eventually immigrated to New Zealand, purchasing Te Whanga Station. In 1996, Paddy and his dad Robin started planning the Borthwick Vineyard & Winery onsite – and it’s them we have to thank for this delicious pinot gris.
We LOVE all of their pinots - noir, of course and this gris - a bright, minerally drop full of fresh, white stone fruits and a touch of nuttiness. From Wairapara, or ‘glistening waters’ in Māori, this vino is just as refreshing as its geography suggests. It’s floral with lovely acid, but fairly full and fruity, so get those oysters ready people!

Maori for 'glistening waters', Wairarapa is a small region around Wellington, at the very bottom of New Zealand's north island. It includes the subregions of Martinborough, Gladstone and Masterton. If the names Dry River, Martinborough Vineyards and Ata Rangi ring a bell, you probably need no further introduction. If they don't, it's time you were introduced to a diverse range of landscapes that produce a similarly varied range of scrumptious wines that Kiwis are rightly proud of.
