"Texture sets this apart from its grigio sibling. It's also full of lemon balm, grapefruit pith and slightly crunchy pears laced with pepper and freshly cut herbs."

About Pinot Grigio/Gris
Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio are made from the same grapes, the difference in the way these wines are named, usually indicates the style, or the country that the wine is made in. Pinot Gris/Grigio grapes develop a distinctive pinkish grey colour on their skins when they ripen. 'Gris' is the French word for grey while 'grigio' means grey in Italian. Some of the world's best Pinot Grigio wines are made in north-eastern Italy, at the foothills of the spectacular Italian Alps. The Alps border the wine regions of Alto Adige, Trentino and Friuli Venezia Giulia. These regions are known for producing high quality Pinot Grigio that is usually dry, light to medium bodied and has a high acidity. This style of Pinot Grigio often shows aromas and flavours of citrus and green fruits. In contrast to Pinot Grigio from Northern Italy, Pinot Gris from Alsace, in Northern France is more full -bodied, rich and textural. The flavour intensity of these wines is also quite pronounced, showing aromas and flavours of dried fruits and honey, at times. High quality Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris is made in Australia, mostly in the cooler regions such as the Adelaide Hills, King Valley, Mornington Peninsula, Orange, the Yarra Valley and Tasmania.
About Mornington Peninsula
The Mornington Peninsula is an inspiring wine region, known for high quality Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio also grow well in the region's ideal, maritime climate. Located 70 kilometres south of Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula is surrounded by three bodies of water (including Port Philip Bay and the Bass Strait), providing ideal cooling breezes (it can be windy at times) and cooler nights that helps the grapes to retain their acidity. The white wines are fragrant and display pure fruit characteristics such as apple, pear and citrus. The Pinot Noir can be either light or more structured, depending on the location of the vineyard and winemaking techniques.
