Pinot Grigio’s spiritual home is Europe. France’s Alsace region (where it is known as Pinot Gris) produces delicious textured wines and in Italy it is a true superstar. Italian Pinot Grigios tend to be light-bodied and lean wines with great acidity and crisp citrus fruit flavours. It is an increasingly popular variety in Australia; here, whether it is labelled Gris or Grigio is often an indicator of style.
Bright aromas of stonefuit, citrus with hints of white florals and subtle chalkiness. The palate is fresh and zippy with a fine texture from four months of lees. Crisp acidity provides the backbone to this wine and gives it a long, lively finish.

“Pretty. Attractive aromas here to hook you in. Introduce yourself to Cooks
Lot - you won’t be disappointed. Soft through the mouth, the fruit purrs from gate to post. Neat textural touches add detail and interest. A delicate ginger spice slithers along bringing cinnamon poached fruit to the fore.” QWine Reviews

"Nashi pear, some spice and perfume, maybe something like brittle toffee? Juicy and plump, fine balance, creamy, a spread of ultra-fine powdery tannin keeps it trim, and there’s some other other stuff going on, not least a long finish with a hint of bitterness, yet never mind all that really: richness, with freshness, structure, and flavour is the import. So bloody good to drink." Gary Walsh
