The Wine Farm Pinot Gris sits somewhere between the full-bodied, rich and opulent French approach to the style and the Italian Pinot Grigio which is lighter, crisper and made to be drunk young and with food. We go for texture and creaminess while retaining the freshness and acidity we love in this variety.
On the nose the wine has a lovely crisp pear aroma mingled with the flesh of white stone fruits. Longer ageing in the bottle has given it an extra richness while retaining a light zing from the earlier picking. The palate is bone dry and the initial attack intense with tart apple and pear. Then the creaminess comes through with some savoury notes of freshly baked bread. It’s more voluptuous than a typical Grigio, but not as buttery as a French gris.
Dry, textured and full of flavour making it delicious with food. Drink it a little warmer than you’d normally drink a white to really give the flavours time to shine. It’s a nod to the Italian, a kiss on both cheeks with the French but 100% The Wine Farm.
