Symphonia Pinot Grigio

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This is the ideal wine for that Sunday family picnic, or that casual night in with a DVD and a few mates. It's a bright, fresh, zingy number that shows lots of apples and pears, along with lemons and ginger. The palate is lighter-bodied and crisp, with racy acidity, crunchy apple flavours, and a dry, refreshing finish.

Winemaker's Notes

The grape Pinot Grigio is a relative of Pinot Noir and the small tight bunches when ripe have an attractive blue/grey appearance, hence the Italian name, “grigio” (grey) or in French, “gris”. It is an early ripening variety that requires gentle handling to minimise the extraction of colour from the skins. It produces a soft and gentle wine that has wonderful finesse and substance.


Nose: The wine is made in the Northern Italian style. Picked early to retain the fresh fruit flavours of pears, honey, almonds and spice.

Palate: The palate is soft and rounded out by the use of lees contact after fermentation.

Food: A true food wine that will accompany a variety of light pastas, seafood, salads and cold meats.

Alcohol: 12.5%

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
A very lively, crisp and crunchy grigio with as much citrus and apple as pear and spice, but all up, with considerable attraction.

Spotlessly clean; attractive pear drop and lemon skin aromas and flavours; lively and long; way above the average.

Plenty of mouthfeel and palate weight, more to Pinot Gris in style, with pear and honey flavours. The alcohol seems higher than it in fact is.

Highly aromatic apple, pear, musk and spice. A delicate yet intense palate, more gris than grigio. Good acidity.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Pale straw-green; spotlessly clean light apple, pear and mineral aromas; the crisp palate gains its length through the steely core of acidity, although the fruit does build somewhat. Well made.
