Pinot Grigio from Italy and Pinot Gris from France are two very different styles that we shouldn’t try to emulate here in Australia. In the Yarra Valley, our soils produce a style of wine that naturally sits somewhere in the middle of these old world counterparts.
We call this wine Pinot Grigio because it’s dry with an acid backbone and a savoury, moreish character.
It exhibits red apple and brown pear, rose and spicy cinnamon aromas with a hint of bread crust goodness. The palate is dry, savoury and textural with preserved lemon rind, fennel and pear flavours.
