About the wine

Fresh and aromatic!
  • Classic pear layers, apple and a touch of rose and nutmeg all contribute aromatic purity and intensity. The palate is fresh yet svelte and finishes with a rose petal flourish. This drop certainly has a hallmark of purity!
  • Rod's latest Angel exclusive Pinot Gris is sourced from four distinct vineyard sites within the Hawke's Bay region which results in greater complexity. Both Rod and his top class growers enjoy an increasingly secure relationship having relied on each other for four years in a row, so Rod can restrict yields and delay picking to his preference. This professional trust is all thanks to the Naked model and ensures the end result is a perfectly ripe, yet relatively dry Pinot Gris.
  • There is a lot of competition for Pinot Gris grapes among winemakers in Hawke's Bay, so volumes will always be limited. An absolute steal at under $14 for Angels, this flies off the Naked shelves every year so don't delay!

Best before
It doesn't require any ageing. But it will provide enjoyable drinking over the next three years.

Serving advice
Start well chilled, then allow to warm slightly in the glass to see the aromas emerge.

Food match
Thai noodle soups go well. But this is a versatile wine with or without food.

Meet the winemaker - Rod Easthope

  • Rod left his full-time post as Chief Winemaker at Craggy Range, New Zealand's most iconic winery, to set-up-shop alone and make an exclusive range of wines just for us, using the BEST grapes that Hawke's Bay, Marlborough and Central Otago have to offer. 
  • Rod is an immense talent, whose wines are dripping in medals, rave journalist reviews and oodles of Parker Points - and thanks to Angel funding and backing, he's agreed to get Naked!
  • This is a huge win because Rod is at the pinnacle of New Zealand winemaking. Your tastebuds are in for an incredible treat.
