Why do we love it, you ask?
Do these guys know how to make a great Pinot Grigio or whaaaat? Seriously great pedigree at the Norfolk Rise Vineyard.
Do yourself a favour. One of our favourite wine styles, this Pinot Grigio is zesty and lip smackingly delicious. Everybody should be drinking this Pinot Grigio. That’s a fact.
Feeling Sav-blanked out? Well this is your answer. This gem is the cooler alternative you have been hoping for.
This wine is going to make these types of food delish…and vice versa!
The long version.
Impress your friends. Impress yourself.
Grape: Pinot Grigio
Region: Mount Benson, SA
The grapes were selectively harvested from the Estate Vineyards from mid-February to mid-March to achieve optimum ripeness for the ‘Grigio’ style. Processing was by full protective handling to avoid any juice oxidation or browning. Small portions of chilled grapes were held on skins in order to maximise the flavours in the resulting juice. The juice was clarified and a long, cool fermentation followed in tank using a selection of aromatic yeast strains. To maximise the retention of fresh fruit flavours and aromas, the resultant wine has been bottled under screw cap.
Pale straw in colour with aromas of spring florals, nectarine, fig, apple, and a hint of spice.
The wine is fresh and fruity with ripe pear and lemon sherbet flavours balanced by a delicate and soft mineral finish. A true ‘Pinot Grigio’ style – fresh, fruity and lively.
