Pinot Gris (aka Pinot Grigio) is thought to be a white grape mutation of Pinot Noir. In fact the actual grapes on the vine are more a pinkish-grey colour on the vine rather than white.
We recently tasted this 2019 Pinot Gris sample from St Annes Winery (thank you!) here in Victoria. St Anne’s have cellar doors in Echuca, Moama, Myrniong and Lorne. This Pinot Gris retails for $20. Here are our notes:
It’s a yellow peach colour in the glass. On the nose it’s juicy and fruity evoking thoughts of freshly squeezed grapefruit, bright florals and just picked herbs. While in the mouth it’s very citrus driven with lovely zest and orchard fruits dominating. It also has a lovely silken texture. Very smashable!
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
