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.
"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
Item Code: ITM19739
Light golden in the glass, the nose an array of cloves, pear, marzipan, honey dew and orange zest. A substantial and powerful palate, initially smooth rounded stone-fruit, progressing to a core of chalky phenolic, expanding into a very long pure finish.
Item Code: ITM22118
A richer, riper style of Gris, with spiced pear and oak notes on the nose, and a subtle lactic character. The palate is rich and textural, with a lovely creamy mouthfeel and hints of apricot biscotti. The finish is long and elegant. Definitely a food wine. Highly Recommended.
Item Code: ITM22929
Lifted aromas of pear, apple and peach with subtle nutty and brioche characters. The palate is full-flavoured with generous layers of fruit and spice balanced by refreshing citrusy acidity with long length of the finish. An elegant and textural Pinot Gris to enjoy now.
