Tahbilk 2020 Pinot Gris
Pizza, Pinot Gris and _________.
Finish the sentence!
Haha I do love my wine and I do love my pizza, but what else starting with a P would you add to the mix?
I love the pinky-grey colour of PG. The colour is from the grape skins which are a pinky-blue colour (google it!). It’s a deliciously fruity wine, think peaches and pears with a hint of flint and lick of baking spice. Juicy, crunchy and darn yummy!
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.

Tahbilk 2018 Pinot Gris
Pinot Gris is extremely popular in NZ compared to Aussie I’ve noticed. If you compare the PG section in an NZ supermarket (oh the normality of getting vino and food in the one shop) to an Aussie one, the latter is well smaller.
Personally I love a good Pinot Gris and there are some stunning Australian made ones. It is a white wine grape
however the fruit is a greyish-pink colour which is why ‘Gris’ translates to ‘Grey’.
Did you know… Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio are the same grape variety? The different names refer to the different styles of wine this grape variety can be crafted into. Google it for more info.
This Tahbilk Winery 2018 Pinot Gris from Nagambie Lakes, Central Victoria (read more about the wineries of Victoria here) has just been released. It’s the second vintage of this wine and is drinking very well. Tahbilk expect it to be enjoyed from now until 2021. Here’s what I thought..
Bronze-y silver-grey colour in the glass. The nose had a hint of fresh peaches, minerality and sweet honey blossoms. While in the mouth it has a voluptuous flavour yet is delicate and has a wonderful citrus-driven freshness. $21.50
Many thanks to FireWorks PR Promotions & Events for sending this tasty treat over for us to try.
