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!
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.
Fruit was harvested at peak flavour maturity in the cool of the night. The juice was separated from skins, cold settled and carefully before being fermented for 14 days. A steady cool ferment ensures a focussed palate with strong varietal Pinot Grigio characteristics.
The 2022 ripening period was steady and moderate in temperature, allowing for development of maximum fruit expression.
It is a great wine just to enjoy on its own, as an aperitif or served with a variety of food, particularly seafood or dishes with a hint of spice.
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.
