Pale straw in colour with immediately appealing aromatics of fennel, pear flesh and a real presence of an indefinable yet enticing complexity; the palate is all about freshness, as the dry, taut and savoury nature of the wine demands another mouthful, as the wine is full of crunchy and refreshing fresh fruit; a touch of nuttiness on the finish maintains the Italian feel to the wine.
Awards and Accolades
2014 Vintage: 92 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "Gin-clear colour; this has far more flavour than most gris, let alone grigios. Ripe pear, verging on poached, with a hint of star anise runs through the well balanced palate, a prickle of lemony acidity to close"
