Pinot Gris Grigio King Valley Victoria
King Valley is to Pinot Grigio what the Veneto region is to the invigorating white styles of northeast Italy. Tobacco farmers established vineyards here decades ago to make good wine for their own consumption, the affinity of the Victorian Alps to Italian varietals made a new home for the fresh and engaging Pinot Grigio. The pick of our KIng Valley samplings, an outstanding Pinot Grigio by Victoria's most accomplished viticultural team, a five Halliday star winery, 100% guaranteed to please, arrives fully labelled, without any delivery fee to every destination in Australia.
Great wine begins in the vineyard, the finest harvests of Pinot Grigio should be treated to minimal intervention throughout the winemaking process. The source of fruit for this fully labelled, estate grown Pinot Grigio is picked off vines that have been husbanded by Victoria's most decorated winemakin team. Fully ripe fruit is harvested and pressed without crushing to retain vitality, batches are chilled to 5°C before vinification at higher temperatures on natural solids, building texture and mellowing the palate without sacrificing varietal character. Ferments are treated to an extended time on sedimentery lees to infuse complexity and enhance varietal richness.
Light straw hues. A clean and fragrant bouquet, florals and pear, minerality and herbaceousness, the honey, pinenut and hay characters which articulate Pinot Grigio. A refreshing palate of apple, stonefruit and lemon peach flavours, lithe spice and grassy, almond notes. Perfect with antipasti or eggplant recipes, sardines, Italian cheese and the freshest fare.
