LIN­DE­MAN’S 2012 BIN 85 PINOT GRI­GIO $ 10

Multi- re­gional 11.5 per cent www.lin­de­mands.com Bright green straw colour, good va­ri­etal green ap­ple and pear aro­mas and flavours, the palate del­i­cate, light and re­fresh­ing in true gri­gio style.

TAR AND ROSES 2012 PINOT GRI­GIO $ 18

Cen­tral Vic­to­ria 13.8 per cent www.tarandroses.com.au At­trac­tive gold/ bronze colour, fruitier, riper and more in­tensely flavoured than the Lin­de­mans, weight­ier, more cream­ily tex­tured and per­haps less typ­i­cally gri­gio too, but de­li­cious drink­ing and the most in­ter­est­ing and in­di­vid­u­ally styled of the wines here.

WIN­DOWRIE 2012 FAM­ILY RE­SERVE PINOT GRIS $ 22

Or­ange, NSW 12.0 per cent www.win­dowrie.com.au At­trac­tively per­fumed with juicy, musky, fresh- cut pear flavours and sub­tle oak sup­port, the mid­weight palate fresh and clean, nicely long and bal­anced with a mouth- fi lling af­ter­taste.

GRANT BURGE 2012 EAST AR­GYLE PINOT GRIS $ 23

Ade­laide Hills, SA 13.5 per cent www.grant­burgewines.com.au Like the pre­vi­ous wine, this sits halfway be­tween the light fresh­ness of the Ital­ian gri­gio style and the richer, oaked and more tex­tured gris styles of Al­sace, com­bin­ing the best of both into an en­joy­able, slightly sweet- fin­ish­ing drop.
