Winery Tasting Notes

Tasting Note - Santa & D’Sas Pinot Grigio has been made to reflect the Italian expression of this grape variety. The nose offers up an abundance of fresh Nashi pear, melon and ginger root. It displays flavours of Nashi pear, green apple and fresh almonds with subtle quince notes. The palate has a bright acid backbone that is crisp right through to a balanced finish.

Food - Match of the vintage: Baked scallops with pancetta. Also try a Cucumber & Grapefuit Spanner Crab Salad or with Creole Prawns with Garlic and Lemon.

Music Match - ‘The Beautiful Ones’, Prince.

Regions - The King Valley is one of Australia’s most exciting and emerging wine regions. Home to the most picturesque and unspoilt valley in Australia, King Valley benefits from a cool climate with extremely varied terrain, that ranges from snow-capped Alps to sun baked fields.

The Season - The 2016 growing season was basically a dry, warm vintage. Yields were moderate with strong agreement on the vibrant aromas and intense flavours in white varieties. Time will define the standouts of the vintage, but the early indication is that the Pinot Grigio is displaying freshness and vibrancy coupled with a great acid backbone and intensity of flavour.
