There’s often not too much to get excited about with Pinot Grigio - that is, unless the winemaker takes it as seriously as Mark Ravenscroft.
His Grigio is electric. Textural but vibrant, shapely but restrained, it’s a great example of how this wine style can enthral a drinker as well as slake their thirst.
Mike Bennie awarded the 2016 vintage 93 points, no mean feat for this humble variety and this unsung region in the south of Queensland.
What It Tastes Like
“Friendly kind of kick off – florals, white pear, nashi pear, nectarine, green herbs. Palate has a softness, a gentle lushness, cool acidity helping out, that lick of pear skin bitterness that goes down a treat. So ever, so seamless, so very high in drinkability. Charming wine.” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
93 points. “Complex, fascinating, delicious expression here. Manages to build weight into the wine but hold freshness. Ravens Croft was one of my star producers from the recent regional tasting. The wines have a funk and spring in their stride. Friendly kind of kick off – florals, white pear, nashi pear, nectarine, green herbs. Palate has a softness, a gentle lushness, cool acidity helping out, that lick of pear skin bitterness that goes down a treat. So ever, so seamless, so very high in drinkability. Charming wine.”

Pinot Gris is a variety that can take on many forms. In one instance it’s crisp, racy and light as in the case of Pinot Grigio, the next it’s round and voluptuous, and sometimes it presents as pinkish or even red! This versatility makes it an incredibly interesting grape. It loves skin contact, it loves lees stirring, it loves anything a winemaker can throw at it, but always it will show lovely perfume, tasty fruit and excellent mouthfeel. It might just be the most underestimated white variety in the country.
