Ingram Rd Yarra Valley Pinot Grigio 2017
Pinot Grigio is a grape variety that is one of the oldest in the world but has only recently started to gain a following in Australia. A long time favorite in Europe, especially Italy, Pinot Grigio has now started to be enjoyed by the Australian drinking public for it's unique flavours and delicious textural qualities. Pinot Grigio can be quite confusing as the styles can vary greatly depending on when and how the winemaker chooses to pick and process the fruit. Gris can be picked early and processed entirely in tank which results in a tight, mineral, sometimes flinty wine, while at the other end of the spectrum, fruit can be picked late, fermented in barrel with the resultant wine being quite viscous, displaying full ripe fruit flavours and an almost oily finish on the palate.
The Wine Front – Very nicely done, and very nicely balanced too. Pears, a little spice, some nutty complexity, subtle tropical fruit, clean acidity, even a touch of flint, and watermelon rind on a good finish. Excellent.
In a mixed or straight case: $18.99
