2016 Oxford Landing Estates Pinot Grigio
Cracka Value Rating
With above average temperatures during the growing season, particularly before Christmas, it was fortunate that the occasional thunderstorm delivered much needed rains and refreshed the vines. During the final stages of the ripening period through to the end of January and into March, the weather was warm and dry, allowing the grapes to ripen with an abundance of bright, fresh and crunchy flavours.
Pale straw in colour. The heady aromas are a mixture of feijoa, apple skin and poached pear with hints of cinnamon and spice. This follows through to the medium-bodied palate, with flavours of poached pear and cinnamon. Soft and supple in a drinkable way, yet with enough weight and texture to match an array of dishes such as Vietnamese spring rolls or vitello tonnato.
