Hugh Hamilton The Trickster Pinot Grigio

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

In mythology, a trickster is a god, spirit, human or animal who gets up to no good or flaunts the rules. Not sure what kind of trickster the sheep is on the label of this wine, maybe it pulls wool over your eyes, but there are no tricks with this wine. It's fresh and unoaked, with lots of fragrant, primal apples, pears and citrus scents running around the glass, whilst the palate is light, dry and zippy with a spicy finish. Great drinking for a barmy Summer evening.

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Pale straw.

Nose: Young Grigio is delicately fragrant. In the Trickster you will you see fresh apples, honeydew melon, lemongrass, and the scent of grapevines when they are flowering. Yes, they flower; and yes, it is a lovely, delicate sweet aroma.

Palate: We have an ongoing love affair with oysters. We are aware that not everyone does (all the more for us!); but we need a wine to match them. This is it. But its freshness, lightness of structure yet depth of flavour, and fresh cool-climate acidity, mean that it is delicious with oysters or without. Dry and delicately spicy on the finish, the Trickster is the wine of summer.

Food: While oysters are our passion, we have enjoyed this wine with crispy pork, fish fillets with ginger, soy and shallots, and even slices of vegetarian frittata. Its fine structure and even but crisp, dry finish make it very versatile.
