2018 BackVintage Adelaide Hills Pinot Grigio - New!
Tasting Notes by Nick Bulleid MW

Huon Hooke Top Value #4 out of 20

 

 
Background

The grapes for this flavoursome wine were grown at Mount Barker, in the Adelaide Hills.
A warmer than usual autumn has contributed to the wine’s generous flavour, tempered by the decision to pick the grapes early, on 28th February.

The juice was fermented largely in stainless steel, while a small proportion did so in older, neutral oak barrels to gain more weight without oak flavour intruding.

Tasting Notes

Colour
Pale yellow

Nose
Subtle pear and white nectarine.

Structure / Palate
Medium bodied. Fresh, with stonefruit flavours and hints of brioche from ageing on lees. The fruit lingers well on the finish, with crisp acidity.

This wine combines the freshness and crisp finish of the Grigio style, with the ripe fruit of Gris. It’s best enjoyed while young and fresh, until the end of 2019. Try it with seafood, salads or just by itself.

_______________________________

Huon Hooke - The Real Review:
"Light copper colour. The bouquet is intense and bright, with lots of dried flower aromas, while the palate is full and very dry, assisted by a light phenolic grip. The wine is full and ample-bodied, round and smooth, with some tannins. A bigger style of grigio, and very flavoursome. Nice drinking."
89 points. Drink 2019 to 2021.
