It's Stefani Estate The View Pinot Gris 2017 from Yarra Valley. The winery is located on one of the highest vineyards in Yarra Valley, perfect for Pinot Gris and they've done the grapes justice with this, it's just delicious.
You'll note it's 2017 vintage, so that zippy acidity mellowing, making way for a softer drink. The nose shows notes of ripe pear and poached figs, with hints of creaminess. The palate is medium bodied and textural with good firm acidity. This is a grigio made true to style, it's from a great vineyard, from a good year and we have a very good price. Don't miss out.
Where this wine comes from - Yarra Valley
Just 50 kilometres from Melbourne, Victoria’s Yarra Valley is a star of the wine regions surrounding the city, known as the ‘Melbourne Dress Circle’. With plenty of microclimates and sub-regions, the Yarra Valley doesn’t have a weak link. Certainly the region’s reputation has been built on the quality of its cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. As far as Chardonnay goes, Yarra Valley strikes the right balance of ripeness, without going over the edge. There’s white peach, lemon pith and Fuji apple supported by a fine spine of citrus-like acidity complemented by supportive oak maturation. The region’s Pinot Noir certainly produces that ethereal quality that Pinot-philes go crazy for – with lifted cherry notes, texture and length. Pinosity? It’s here in spades. Don’t discount Yarra Valley Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, which also have a long history in the region and are being recognised for producing their own unique regional styles. Game on!
