Vibrant, racy and bright sums up how I think Grigio should be.
About the Wine
If Pinot Gris/Grigio floats your boat, then give this little number from Sam Scott should hit the spot.
It's Adelaide Hills fruit made in two stages. First, keep it fresh and bright with early picking and quick pressing avoiding any tannin or chew - pristine juice is the most important. Then with careful and clever winemaking, Sam weaves savoury elements throughout the wine with intentional use of oxygen and lees.
The final result is a wine that is both fresh and textural at the same time. It's Pinot Grigio built for drinking with food or without.
