A concentrated and rich off-dry style Pinot Gris with vibrant aromas of stone fruit, pear and spice. Flavours of peach and pear flesh out the entry into the palate, with ginger and spice notes unfolding.

Why we love it: It’s white, aromatic and floral – delicious.
Drink with: Pork – yum!


Te Kano means seed in Maori and was chosen by The Lloyd family to celebrate NZ’s iconic kowhai tree.  The lone surviving kowhai tree on the Te Kano Estate in Central Otago is known as “Old Man Kowhai”. He overlooks their newest vineyard site Northburn, above Lake Dunstan, which will offer its first vintage in 2019.

The other two vineyard sites, Jerome and Elisa, are named after much-adored Lloyd family members.  All are under the careful guidance of Estate manager Nick Hunter, who ensures Te Kano’s approach to rejuvenating the land and creating a sustainable future through careful stewardship and a commitment to replanting is king.

Te Kano’s winemaker Dave Sutton started his journey as a viticulturist in both Marlborough and South Australia. He traveled around the globe to work for wineries in the United States, Chile, Spain, Germany, France, Ukraine and then back to Australia and New Zealand before joining Te Kano and the Lloyd family.  His commitment to creating wines of layered elegance and sublime natural quality is unwavering.
