The Smith & Hooper Pinot Grigio shows the purity of our Wrattonbully vineyards and the delicacy and flavour of the variety.

The Details

Tasting Note Pale straw in colour with green hues. Aromas of fresh pear juice with hints of red apple and strawberry. The pear and strawberry flavours continue on the palate, where they are joined with custard apple and anise, creating a rich and succulent palate. The wine finishes with lingering acidity and a hint of musk.
Best Enjoyed With Pair with chicken saltimbocca, Thai-style grilled eggplant, or an avocado and green apple salad.
Treatment Grapes were gently pressed to minimise colour and tannin extraction from the pink skins. Fermentation proceeded on full solids, conducted by yeast indigenous to the vineyard. The wine was then left on its lees until preparation for bottling.

Accolades

A neat expression
A neat expression of this variety from the cool climate region of Wrattonbully. Aromas of fresh green apple and a hint of spice. The palate is dry and crisp with an apple and pear thing happening. Just a little of that varietal mush character. This is just right for current drinking, but that bright acidity should ensure it can handle a couple of extra years.
