Brown Brothers 18 Eighty Nine Pinot Grigio
The Grigio coming out of the King Valley is properly Italian in style and one of the pioneers are Brown Brothers who continue to produce a crisp, lean style of dry white that’s perfect with antipasto platters or white fish. Varietal and fresh, this wine shows pear and citrus, and some savoury characters on the nose and palate. It’s crisp with delicate fruit and crisp acids providing a wine that’s true to the Grigio style.
In the glass the wine is a pale straw colour with a youthful green hue. The nose is busting with crisp pear and peach aromas, while the palate offers some distinct savoury characters and a tight finish full of delicate acidity thanks to the cool climate fruit. Unlike the French style which is richer on the palate, Pinot Grigio is crisp, fresh and savoury. True to Pinot Grigio style, this is best served chilled and enjoyed within 1-3 years of vintage.
The wine was bottled soon after fermentation and was completed with an alcohol of 12.5%.
