De Bortoli Gulf Station Pinot Grigio

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2011 Vintage) says
Perhaps more of a gris style, with a delicate, dusty bouquet of pear and apple backed by nuances of citrus and butter, cloves and cinnamon with a hint of cashew. It's juicy and rather viscous, with a long, even presence of brightly lit, faintly musky pear, apple and clove-like flavour.

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
If you really love Marlborough sauvignon blanc, best give this a miss: there is no fountain of tropical fruits, but there is a structure to an elegant, finely chiselled wine, with pea pod, grass and mineral notes filled out by partial barrel ferment and lees stirring. The finish is long and clean, with a nod to white Bordeaux.

Tyson Stelzer (2010 Vintage) says
The key is not its overt varietal distinction, but calm, restrained subtlety and fine, mineral, mouth-filling texture. Grigio in the true sense, nuanced with crunchy pear and lemon fruit. Refreshing quaffing.

Light and fresh, with delicate varietal fruit characters. Sweet lift to the nose. Good food wine.

WINESTATE (2009 Vintage) says
Floral/musky aromas and tight, fresh palate with what one judge described as Ðvarietal honestyÓ.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Almost devoid of colour; crisp and minerally, with subliminal notes of pear and green apple; a gently firm finish; part estate grown.

"Fascinating aromatics, savoury, weighty and deliciously mouth-watering."
