2015 De Bortoli La Bossa Yarra Valley Pinot Grigio
Fresh early January rains prepared vines for what was to be a mild & then dry Riverina vintage. The cooler temps allowed for great depth in pungent fruit aromas and allowed the retention of natural acid in most varieties. Quality is well above average.
Appearance: Pale straw.
Bouquet: White stone fruit and almonds.
Palate: Crunchy pear offers a mid-palate balance and a clean finish.
Cellaring: Best enjoyed fresh or up to two years.
Food match: These lighter style whites have a touch of zest and herbaceous characters, they match well with:
Cooked seafood - seafood pastas and salads; grilled prawns; fish and chips; scallops
Vegetables - roast pumpkin with goats cheese; stuffed capsicum; vegetarian pastas
