Te Aro Estate 'Minnie & Elsa' Pinot Grigio 2012

My first 2012 wine written up on the site.  Te Aro - or 'Happy Home' - is located at the Southern end of the Barossa, in Williamstown.  Starting out as growers in 1919, 3-4 generations later- 2001 - sees them take on a new guise as producer.

Crystalline pure in colour, fresh like a mountain stream.  Aromatically crisp also, pear and crunchy apple with salad like crispness further enhancing it.

Clean entry - yes crisp sprung to mind again, it's good Grigio - there's a hint of tropical fruit in the mix here, guava-esque.  Adds to the refreshment, inoffensive.  Good pitched acidity and a gentle waxy feel on the finish concludes matters.  This is good Pinot Grigio. 88 - Good
