This is a (‘nother) favourite in our home. I want to point out from the start it has nothing to do with the price and everything to do with the wine.
I know this is going to sound a bit bizarre but part of the excitement about each vintage of this wine is which part of the Gris/Grigio spectrum this is going to sit and with this one, it’s touch and go which way it falls. Either way, it never disappoints.
Pinot Gris was the ‘style’ of choice (just) with the crew I served this up to even though the general consensus was it had a Grigio freshness. It offers up a fair bit on the palate and that is where is proves it’s an absolute bargain. Plenty of pear characters and some nice texture, then in comes a gentle crunchy apple like acid component that I reckon is where that freshness comes from. It adds a nice dimension to the wine too.
Stating the obvious here I know. This is a bloody good wine at a bloody good price.
