The Lloyd family fell in love with this site located in Central Otago and decided to plant vineyards on it. They named the estate Te Kano, meaning seed in Maori. Helped with viticulturist Mike Winter and winemaker Dave Sutton, they produce a small selection from vineyards and barrels, which are often produced in extremely limited quantities.
Vibrant aromas of stone fruit, pear and spice with hints of tropical fruits, honey and ginger. Concentrated and rich off-dry style Pinot Gris.
Jerome vineyard. Very pretty and textural with freshness and brightness. A bit of tangerine richness, with some tropical notes as well as rose petal and lychee. Flavoursome.- 91 pts Dr. Jamie Goode, Wine Anorak
