Coombe Yarra Valley Pinot Gris 2019
$26.00 – $75.00
Intense aromas of white peach, nashi pear, ginger and rose water. Just a touch of texture and roundness add some class but mainly this is a fresh light fragrant and perfumed style. Great refreshing palate cleansing drink by itself wine but would not look out of place near spicy cuisine or lighter antipasto.
$26 or 3 for $75
The Yarra Valley was Victoria’s first wine growing district with a history stretching back 170 years.
The Yarra Valley is now recognised as one of Australia’s foremost cool climate regions, capable of making classic styles from a wide range of varieties. It is known as the birthplace of Victoria’s wine industry.
The regional emphasis on the quality and flavour of wine has spread to the local produce grown in the same fertile soil and expertly tended. Expect fine contemporary fare and ambient dining in some of the most picturesque settings in Victoria. (Wine Australia)
Variously labeled Pinot Gris or Pinot Grigio (mainly for marketing purposes) the vast majority is made into a fresh, vibrant juicy style made for early consumption.
A large proportion of plantings are in the Murray Darling region and goes into the production of affordable entry level wines. Adelaide Hills and the distinctly Italian influenced region of King Valley produces some very interesting, complex versions. (Wine Australia)
