Barossa Tower Pinot Grigio 2010
Sold Out
Tasting Notes

Pinot Grigio is the Italian name for the variety known as Pinot Gris in France. This wine is a cool climate example from Eden Valley where the clean natural acidity has been naturally preserved to give the wine a delicacy and freshness typical of some northern Italian Pinot Grigio’s.

It is a beautiful bright wine with aromas of tart apple, nashi pear and a hint of spice on the nose. On the palate it is restrained and mineral with zesty citrus and stone fruit flavours. A crisp and refreshing wine, with delicate intense flavours.

Winemaking

Picked early in the morning, the fruit was delivered cool to the winery. Gentle pressing to minimise phenolics and cold settling preceded a long, cool fermentation averaging 14°C. The fermentation was left to run its course over 14 days leaving a naturally clean, crisp vibrant wine.

Review by: Peter Forrestal, QUAFF 2011

This Barossa white has some floral aromas, good weight and viscosity, is juicy, even succulent, on the mid-palate, and finishes fresh and clean.
