About This Wine

Kate Radburnd is a New Zealand winemaking icon.

She has compiled an impressive resumé since her graduation from Australia’s acclaimed Roseworthy College and beginning her career in New Zealand with Vidal in 1987. There, she produced a string of award-winning wines.

In 1991, Radburnd joined Pask. She became a co-owner in 1993, and managing director in 1999. Under her guidance, Pask has seriously ramped up its reputation, and secured an impressive haul of trophies, gold medals and other accolades. For her outstanding contribution to New Zealand’s wine industry, Radburnd was awarded the George Fistonich Medal in 2010.

Radburnd now also makes a line of impressive wines under her own name, with an emphasis on varietal integrity. Of the 2014 “Sun Kissed” Pinot Gris, Radburnd says, “This is a rich, mouth-filling Pinot Gris, with lovely texture and weight.” Medium-bodied and off-dry, it’s a flavorful, fresh, creamy and delicious wine.

About Pinot Gris

In northeast Italy it makes a light, crisp and neutral wine. In Alsace it can be a delicately perfumed, honey-flavored wine, either dry or sweet, and with more color than most whites.
