Could the biggest compliment to a bottle of wine be emptying it? I think so!
Wine is to be consumed and enjoyed right? And Georgie’s wines are perfect for that as they are made in a drink-now style, cost a mere $10 a bottle, and come with an expertly matched 80s pop tune. What’s not to like?
A big thank you to Georgie Orbach Wines for sending us over this sample of the 2020 Pinot Gris to taste.

My tasting note
It’s a lemon & lime shade in the glass. There’s whiffs of apple sherbet, a lick of juicy white peach, and some old-fashioned lemonade coming through on the nose for me. While in the mouth it’s rather dainty with delicate acidity across the palate with stonefruit flavours on the finish and a hint of grapefruit in the mid-palate. Darn easy to drink if you ask me!
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it. All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
