It’s that time of year again! Sun, BBQ’s, Swimming and of course… White wine!
To kick off this great weather I opted to push the weekday wallet and picked up a $19 bottle of Pinot Gris. Grant Burge - hailing from Adelaide Hills - has family roots in wine making dating back to 1855! Grant, starting the Grant Burge label with wife Helen back in 1988 always runs with a family first business model. Respect.
Grant Burge ‘East Argyle’ (South Australia/Barossa)
- Pinot Gris
- 750ml (Screw Top)
- I paid: $19
A beautiful gold flake colour matching the bottles label bounces around in the glass bringing with it strong scents of fresh green fruit, melons and a cinnamon tail. It’s a sweet smelling (and sweet looking) wine. Ridiculously soft melon and green apple pop in the mouth at first contact and both taper out nicely to a gentle pear finish which leave the inside of my mouth feeling as if I had just eaten a piece of fresh fruit.
This wine comes at you with a relaxed vibe all the way until finished. Soft smells, appealing looks and subtle flavours all combine to make it a super easy drinker and super friendly to have around. Spring has started in good fashion! Drink this wine with a glass, until empty.
