VISTA is an acronym for Varied Inclines Slopes Terrain & Aspects….. And vista is the Italian word for “view” of course. Here we have a little Italian-Austrian origin blend with the well established Grigio and the new white grape hero from the Hills, Grüner. Vegan friendly.
Longview Vineyard, VISTA, Pinot Grigio, Grüner Veltliner, Adelaide Hills, 2021
Epitome of zesty. Green leafy nettle, easy green pear, melon balls, lime pith, soft matcha tea and little hotel soaps. Zesty and dry with juicy, saliva inducing acidity and plenty of drive. Grüner provides peppery spice while the blend has inherent phenolic grip. It’s not overly complex but wonderfully weighted and enjoyable.
Rating: 17.5/20 (90/100)
