About

Dave Mackintosh's Arfion label has a good track record with this popular grape, and his style really captures the freshness of 'Grigio' with the texture of 'Gris'. Unlike the vast majority of Pinot Grigio on the market, his is very much hand-made from start to finish. It comes from the Coombe vineyard in the warmer Lower Yarra Valley area - a site with a great track record for Pinot Gris. The fruit was hand-picked in the cool early morning to retain freshness and concentration, with whole bunches, older oak and some lees stirring adding nice texture and interest. It's zippy and refreshing on the one hand, chewy and thought-provoking on the other. A quality Pinot Grigio and super value with just 300 dozen produced.

What it Tastes Like

The nose is delicate and fragrant, with aromas of apples, pears, roses and spicy cinnamon. The palate is dry but textural, with flavours of stone fruits, fennel and hints of minerals. A chewy, racy finish to a lovely wine.
