So many winemakers talk about bench-making their wines. This wine should be added as it is the best quality wine from this variety that I have tasted. I guess bench making allows people to see the differences in style, quality and winemaking techniques that are out there. What I think most people use it for is a tax deductible piss up. Whatever the reason I think people should get on board this wine and the wines that are produced from this producer as they are more true to the variety and the tradition of the winemaking process.
Pizzini White Fields Pinot Grigio 2013
Pinot Grigio is normally fresh and fruity which this is but this wine has texture and savoury characters woven throughout. The wine starts out with pears aplenty and fresh cut flower before a massive wedge of acidity cuts through. I set the wine aside for another day before I moved back and now it looked unbelievable with fresh salted nuts, lemon peel, Asian spice before the normal pear and flowers bolting in. The palate seems to balance the freshness with some more weighty moments yet still look like a beautiful Grigio all the way to the end. I would recommend keeping it for another year before I tuck in.
Drink: 2016 – 2025
