The Sileni Cellar Selection Pinot Gris has stone fruit, pear, and citrus flavors. Ripe and luscious fruity flavors combined with a hint of spice and well balanced acidity makes this wine a nice must-have.
This is excellently paired with a fragrant pesto sauce. You may also serve with shellfish, roast chicken, or pasta.
Ever wondered where the name Sileni comes from? Sileni were Dionysus’s (the god of wine, vineyards, and theater) companions in ancient Greece. When there was a reason to celebrate, the Sileni were always there to promote the enjoyment of wonderful cuisine, fine wine, and social contact.
Sileni Estates was named after them and it stands for superb cuisine, great wine, and fantastic company. Sileni Wine is made from the finest of Hawke’s Bay and Marlborough vineyards during each harvest. Their wines are designed to be wonderful collaborators; they have an initial likeability as well as the ability to enhance flavors and textures.
The Sileni winery is voted one of the top dining and wine destinations in New Zealand, provides spectacular architecture and famous vineyard vistas all year round, right in the middle of the Bridge Pa District.
