About

An above average level of winemaking attention is applied across the board by Dave Bicknell for his early drinking Over The Shoulder range. The quality and drinkability are almost unmatched for the price. If you're on the hunt for some tasty Pinot Grigio, this slips straight into 'no brainer' territory. It's got length, a lick of new oak, and a clean, crunchy line of acidity - all the things that take Pinot Grigio out of 'dry white' territory and into the zone of 'interesting drop'. With 91 points from Campbell Mattinson, you'll have to look hard to find a better buy anywhere in the country.

What it Tastes Like

"Strong apple and lime leaf flavours with runs of spice and chalk. There’s a subtle smoky, oak-spiciness thing going on here though it’s so subtle we’re almost into power-of-suggestion territory. Apple flavours are both of the Granny Smith and red apple variety; the former adding a tart, refreshing crunchiness and the latter a pretty, more perfumed aspect. In any case it all combines to work a treat. Go forth and enjoy." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
