The Little Penguin Pinot Grigio 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The Little Penguin, the smallest of penguins, is found all along the coast of South Eastern Australia - from north of Sydney around to Western Australia, a habitat that also frames the best wine growing regions in Australia. Like the charming and approachable seabird on the label, the Little Penguin wines are appropriate for any occasion. From a party with the whole colony to a quiet night in the burrow, the Little Penguin enjoys nothing more than socialising and foraging for delicacies. Consider yourself invited to do the same with these delightful south eastern Australian wines.. WINEMAKER COMMENTS... Vineyard Region South Eastern Australia. Vintage Conditions 2007 was a relatively early vintage, with low rainfall and warm weather contributing to an early budburst and flowering. Mild to warm weather throughout summer helped the fruit to mature well and rains at harvest allowed fruit to ripen well with good varietal character. Nose: The nose shows complex aromas of honeysuckle, citrus and white pear. Palate: The aroms follow onto a delicious, fruit driven palate with touches of light spice, balanced by crisp acidity. Technical Analysis Harvest Date: March - April 2007. pH: 3.27 Acidity: 5.3g/L Alcohol: 12% Residual Sugar: 6.3g/L Bottling Date August 2007 Peak Drinking Now to 2008 Grape Variety: Pinot Grigio . Maturation: This wine was matured in stainless steel. Colour: Pale straw Sugar: 6.3g/L

Not overly aromatic but it is a very smooth and refreshing wine. Would buy again.

Light and silky, with an earthy edge to the pear and melon flavors. Drink now.

Fragrant, with pretty pear and melon fruit, lingering modestly. Drink now.
