Sea Level ‘Home Block’ Pinot Gris 2015

Sea Level is the brand of the Smail family who own a 14 ha vineyard site at Mariri, opposite the Kina Peninsula in Nelson. The 8 ha of grapes, were planted in 2008, and the vines are tended by Dan Manuge, who lives on the property. Approximately half of the vines are Pinot Gris, with smaller amounts of Gewurztraminer, clone 95 Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Pinot Noir. Sam Smail, makes most of the wines at Whitehaven in Marlborough where he is chief winemaker. The Pinot Gris is made at the nearby Anchorage facility to minimise skin contact. It has proven to be a successful wine. Here is my review of the 2015 release.
