JOSEPH d'Elena Pinot Grigio Wine of the Week

Stewart Noble has reviewed the JOSEPH d'Elena Pinot Grigio 2010 as his wine of the week on www.winewithoutbs.com.au

Still very much on the trail of great wines for summer I recently commented that Pinot Gris is considered an ‘In fashion’ wine this summer. What I forgot to mention is that Pinot Grigio is exactly the same grape variety and hence has to be just as fashionable with Gris being the French term and Grigio the Italian name. No surprises then that Primo Estate founders, the Grilli family, migrated from Italy and their wines often incorporate Italian wine making techniques learnt and passed down by founder, Primo Grilli, to his son and now head winemaker/owner, Joseph.

Named after Joseph’s daughter, whose birth in 1998 coincided with the planting of the vineyard used for growing Pinot Grigio, this wine has a classic pale straw like colour and an intriguing aroma. On the palate the wine sits somewhere between savoury and fruity and just so full of flavour it is one of the few Pinot Grigio’s I find tasty enough on its own, while always remaining a style made to enjoy with food.
