Varieties: Pinot Grigio
Region: South Australia
Bottle size: 750 mL
The wine shows vibrant pear and white peach aromas and flavours and a well-balanced crisp yet generous texture; modelled in the classic Italian style, with just a touch of fruit sweetness backed by bright acidity and a lengthy punch of fruit flavour!
The climate and soils of South Australia enable us to produce Pinot Grigio very similar to the grape’s origin in northern Italy.
Fruit was harvested at peak flavour maturity from the family-owned vineyard in the Riverland, the juice separated from skins, cold settled and fermented for 14 days. A steady and cool ferment ensures the maximum expression of the varietal character of Pinot Grigio.
The 2023 growing season was cooler than average across Australia, allowing for development of maximum fruit expression at lower alcohol levels.
This wine can be enjoyed on its own or with a wide range of food, particularly spicy dishes or seafood.

Mr. Mick Pinot Grigio follows the core philosophy of our range of wines, quite simply an ‘easy-going’ wine that creates interest and satisfies many palates.
Like most Italian varieties, Pinot Grigio is a versatile variety and therefore is also suited to a broad array of cuisine. ottled as soon as possible and under screwcap to retain all the fresh and delicate aromas.
Fans of the style rejoice: plenty of aromatic varietal action with pear slices, soft peach flesh and rocket greenery. Some intrigue with a little white cherry and white part of the watermelon rind. Pleasant and crisp, rich with pear and a zesty nature. Does what it says in the label with aplomb and balance.
Mr Mick 2021 Pinot Grigio
Winemaking veteran Tim Adams is one of the stars of the Clare Valley, but he sources fruit from the Limestone Coast for his Mr Mick Pinot Grigio, a lively young wine full of the joys of the changing seasons. Think fresh pear and peach flavours, lively refreshing acid, and plenty of fun pre-dinner, or with food. Mr Mick, by the way, was Adams’ late mentor Mick Knappstein. This is a stellar bargain for $18.
