Joe Grilli, Primo Estate’s owner and winemaker, named his Pinot Grigio 'd’Elena' as he planted his single hectare of Pinot Grigio vines the week his daughter Elena was born in 1998. Eighteen years later, the vines have developed deep roots in the shale stone soil and produce a savoury style Pinot Grigio with minerality and elegance. The fruit is handpicked and very gently pressed before fermentation in stainless steel. The wine is bottled early to preserve the delicate fruit characters. Best enjoyed young, this wine will drink well for several years. The d'Elena offers fresh citrus fruit acidity and light pear fruit. This wine's natural acidic balance and savoury mineral length make it the perfect food wine.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Top Aussie White, 92 Points The style is very much in the pinot grigio (rather than gris) mould: crisp, lean and taut, with a linear profile and an intense, dry/savoury and appetizing palate. The bouquet is grassy, peppery and lightly floral. A very quaffable dry white. Drink young. Huon Hooke, February 2014
