Meet Misha’s Vineyard. Exclusive to Langton’s, this Central Otago vineyard has been making captivating wines since 2003. With a range named for the namesake founder’s theatrical family, it’s no wonder the label is garnering applause. The Dress Circle Pinot Gris is elegant and fresh, with aromatics indicative of its Central Otago provenance.
The Dress Circle is a foolproof pairing for food, or simply a refreshing Pinot Gris to sit back and enjoy.
It is splendidly fruited and fabulously expressed on the nose showing fresh pear, rockmelon, nectarine and blossom aromas, leading to a beautifully weighted palate that is succulent and flowing. The wine offers gorgeous fruit purity together with fine texture and refreshing acidity, finishing long and very appealing.

Fragrant, pure, fruity and varietal with aromas of pomacous fruits - sweet green pear and red apple, white spice of pepper, a soft lees moment with a gentle whit-beer note and creamy texture completing the bouquet. Flavours on the palate reflect the nose with white fleshed fruits and some white spice, a generous core, youthful acidity and warmth. Balanced, well made and lengthy finish. Immediately enjoyable and drinkable from today and through 2022.

Delicately succulent pinot gris, with a whisker of sweetness that seems totally appropriate. Quite a floral style with wildflowers and a hint of rose petal together with citrus, lime and stone fruit flavours. Appealing purity and an ethereal texture.

Central Otago, located at the southern end of the South Island of New Zealand, is the world’s most southerly wine region. In a short amount of time, the area has established itself as a world-class region for Pinot Noir. The picturesque region is surrounded by mountains ensuring a cool semi-continental climate that experiences a large diurnal range contributing to the creation of intensely concentrated wines with perfume, and complexity. Central Otago’s vineyard area is divided into six distinct sub regions each with their own climate and wine style. Best known for producing intensely Fruity medium to full bodied Pinot Noir, Central Otago’s cool climate also produces outstanding Riesling as well as superb bottle-fermented Sparkling wines.
