Te Kano’ (Maori for seed) celebrates the lone surviving Kowhai tree affectionately known as ‘Old Man Kowhai’ on the land Te Kano Estate now calls home.
Committed to rejuvenating the land and a sustainable future through re-planting and excellent stewardship, Te Kano is for those who appreciate the rarest combination of layered elegance and sublime natural quality.
Concentrated and expressive, with vibrant aromas of fresh ginger, Nashi pear and tropical fruits. Flavours of fresh pear, stonefruit and spice explode onto the palate and sumptuous, ripe tropical fruits give depth and weight.
A complex, balanced expression of pinot gris, with a hint of fruit sweetness complementing the defined, mineral acidity.
