La Bise Wines Pinot Grigio 2016

The labeling is floral and evocative, with a noticeable “whole bunch pressed” wine making comment firmly planted on the front. Whether or not the consumer understands what this means or sees it as a good or bad thing (or even cares) is a discussion for another time. On to the wine.

La Bise Wines, Pinot Grigio, Adelaide Hills, 2016

The merest hint of a coppery blush suggests some skin contact. Aromatic nose with hay barrels, ginger shavings, cumquat and brown pear. Textural and full mouth feel, almost Gris in style. Honey drizzled pear slices, lime-esque citrus, black tea and a line of drying minerality to keep the fruit in check. Deft wine making here. Very good.

RRP: $22
Alc: 13%
