Banta Box, Pinot Grigio, Riverina, NV
Honeyed and slight milky breakfast tea aromas with chunky tinned pear flesh, light barley sugar, rich citrus, crystalline ginger, green apple and melon peel. Steely and wan palate. Initial flesh before light weight reflections of Pinot Gris. It’s clean and fresh, without complexity.
