2017 Lola Pinot Grigio
|Producer||Bass River Winery|
|Region||King Valley, Vic|
Hand crafted by the Santarossa family from 25 year old vines from a single vineyard, 510m above sea level in Whitlands, King Valley. Pinot Grigio is the Italian name for the French variety Pinot Gris. The crisp Pinot Grigio style from Northern Italy is picked early to produce a fresh and racy wine with an underlying mineral backbone of acidity.
|Wine||Dry, spicy, textured, Pinot Grigio has been made to reflect the Italian expression of this grape variety. The nose offers up an abundance of fresh Nashi pear, melon and ginger root. It palate displays flavours of yellow pear, green apple and fresh almonds with subtle spice and quince notes. A bright acid backbone supports the excellent fruit weight and intensity leading to a balanced finish that is crisp and clean.|
Wild yeast fermentation and lees stirring in seasoned French oak, have given layers of finesse and complexity that finish crisp and balanced.
|Awards||95 points James Halliday.|
|Tasting Note||Nashi Pear - Apple - Crunchy|
