Pizzini Pinot Grigio 2017

Pizzini are located in the North East of Victoria, in the King Valley, while Pinot Grigio has its home in the North East of Italy. So it makes sense really.

Pizzini, Pinot Grigio, King Valley, 2017


The nose opens with archetypal pear skin, richer quince fruit, soapy lime, candle wax and some cold tea notes. Plenty of lime citrus and pear flesh on the palate, with unexpected complexity and phenolic grip. There’s some lingering spice while the acidity keeps things bright. A step up from the usual run of the mill grigio “dry white.”
