Symphonia Pinot Grigio 2012

The Symphonia vineyard near Myrrhee in Victoria's King Valley was first planted in 1981. The fruit for this PG has been previously taken by De Bortoli, now Symphonia are looking to forge ahead with wines under their own label and name.

This is a slightly different Pinot Grigio from many that you may encounter on the market. Has the aromatic profile of the variety, courtesy of a little green apple and melon character. However it’s actually on the palate where things take a little detour.

A few winemakers’ tricks have imparted textural quality on the wine, that is, enhanced mouthfeel. Acidity is nicely pitched, and finishes with a little briny tang. Good intensity too. Well worth seeking out. 90 - Good
