Chaffey Bros. Wine Co. The Killer Pinot Grigio 2012

The label for this wine is very smart and makes it attractive when it sits on the wine shelf. The variety was first introduced into Australia by James Busby back in 1832. The variety is living the high life at the moment as it seems to be on the by the glass list in many restaurants and wine bars. Personally I think the Mornington Peninsula is doing the best in Australia but Italy is still the king.

The flavours are good for a wine under 10 bucks with a slight difference than I am used to for this variety. This profile is slightly sour but still retains the lovely pear flavour with the palate heaviness sitting at around the light weight end of the spectrum. The flavours hit the front palate well but stop at around the mid-palate which means this would work well at a barbeque but not at a high class wine snob party.
