TREN­THAM RIVER RE­TREAT

2013 Pinot Gri­gio $ 14

Mur­ray Dar­ling

12.5 per cent Pale- straw colour with fairly straight­for­ward herbal, grassy aro­mas and light musk notes on both the nose and palate in a pleas­antly light and bal­anced commercial style. Chill well for a slip- down re­fresher.

MUD HOUSE

2013 Pinot Gris $ 19

Marl­bor­ough, NZ

13.5 per cent A much more aro­matic and fl avour­some style than the pre­vi­ous wine with at­trac­tive spiced pear and nutty char­ac­ters, the palate richer, fuller- bod­ied and smoothly tex­tured bal­anced and fresh­ened by good juicy acid­ity.

STARVE DOG LANE

2013 Pinot Gris $ 20

Ade­laide Hills, SA

12.5 per cent Green ap­ple and grassy/ dried herb aro­mas and fl avours with just a lick of oak adding some full­ness and a light creamy tex­ture be­fore a re­fresh­ing tangy fi nish. Not overly com­plex but it slips down nicely.

HOLM OAK

2013 Pinot Gris $ 25

Rowella, Tas

13 per cent Pale with a faint cop­pery tinge, in­tensely aro­matic – cut pear, spices and nougat – with sim­i­lar fl avours packed into a beau­ti­fully tex­tured and weighted palate, a pro­por­tion of wild bar­rel fer­ment pro­vid­ing added rich­ness and com­plex­ity and a long, crunchy and fl avour­some af­ter­taste. Lovely drink­ing.
