The Latin word Aeris translates as “Air”. It is this wine's contact with air that gives it its characteristic flavour and this wine is North Canterbury Pinot Gris at its most complex, thanks to winemaker Guy Porter.
His inspiration is the great nutty dry whites of the Jura, which is possibly France's most unknown wine region.
This wine was fermented to dryness in old oak barrels then aged under a veil of flor yeast for four years. Aeris is unfortified but has a final alcoholic strength of 17.5% achieved through evaporation in cask.
