2020 ON POINT PINOT GRIGIO

$19.00

Our Pinot Grigio is named as a tribute to Trevor and Marilyn’s two granddaughters, in acknowledgement of their passion and excellence in ballet and dancing. It’s a play on the French ballet term ‘en pointe’; to stand on one’s toes in full extension – no easy feat – but something both granddaughters can do with ease and grace.

Very proud of our back-to-back sell-out successes for all four consecutive releases of our On Point Pinot Grigio, we have identified that purity of our Pinot Grigio can be best expressed when we move our precious fruit swiftly from the vineyard, to fermentation, to the bottle.

The 2020 vintage gifted us with aromas dancing with blossoms and pears. Lime zest and soft, mouth-filling tropical flavours are chased by delicious apple, melon, and delicate spice. Complementary cleansing acidity ensures the most refreshing drinking pleasure possible.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PINOT GRIS AND PINOT GRIGIO…

Both wines are made from the same Pinot Gris grape (gris being French for grey, the colour of the Pinot Gris grape). The difference between the two wines comes in the winemaking technique. The Italian style Pinot Grigio style wines are typically lighter-bodied, crisp, fresh, with vibrant stone fruit and floral aromas and a touch of spice. In contrast, the French Pinot Gris style wines are more full-bodied, richer, spicier, and more viscous in texture.

We make ours in the Italian grigio style, purely because we prefer it that way.
