Brokenwood Pinot Gris 2019

According to recently released data, Pinot Gris (and Grigio) consumption in Australia continues to grow and grow. Hunter Valley’s based Brokenwood look to Victoria’s alpine region for their Pinot Gris.

Brokenwood, Pinot Gris, Beechworth, 2019

Minimal time on skins means a colour of pale lemon with just green highlights. Vibrant and alive with pear flesh, bitter citrus, candlewax and light honeysuckle blossom. Just medium weighted: the palate some weight with a creamy, rather than oily or waxy, viscosity. Acidity retained for zing and thrust. A wine of some richness and power with more than a nod to the wines of Alsace. Popularity be damned, this is a fine release.

RRP: $30
Alc: 13.4%
