Riverlife by Oxford Landing, Sun Chasing, Pinot Grigio, Riverland, 2022
Pale straw colour. Soft citrus and melon with brown pear flesh, brown spice, warm apple and a touch of richness from the lees work. Easy textural palate: a little heft with juicy, but not brash acidity. Plenty of varietal pear and apple flesh to keep fans happy. Expected consistency from the house and fun innovation with the label.
Rating: 17/20 (88/100)
