Smith & Hooper, Pinot Grigio, Wrattonbully, 2019

A pale gold hue with faint green highlights. Green and nashi pear aromas with native fennel/anise and a little creamy depth. Light to medium bodied, the palate provides some texture and consistency from start to finish.  Flavours of green pomme fruits that feel a touch muted. Stays somewhat fresh with green apple like acidity through a medium length tail. Serviceable.
