Relbia Estate Pinot Grigio, Launceston Tasmaina, Australian White Wine
A fantastic Pinot Grigio from Relbia Estate, situated near Launceston, Northern Tasmania. The fruit is sourced from the Southern reaches of the Tamar Valley and carefully vinefied in stainless steel to give full varietal expression. This wine has potential for cellar ageing but is drinking beautifully now!
More like a Pinot Grigio from the Alto Adige than from the Veneto region, this wine is pale lemon with green highlights., it is bursting with fleshy ripe pear, acacia flower, restrained citrus, and crystalised ginger aromas. The palate is medium bodied with levels of typical cool climate acidity that beautifully balances the forward nature of the fruit. As such the mouthfeel is almost creamy!
Would pair well with semi soft rinded cheeses (Reblouchon, St Nectaire), washed rind cheeses (Munster, Epoisses) or cheese souflet.
