Cox Family Wines Tumbarumba Pinot Grigio 2023


From the Tumbarumba region in New South Wales, one of the coolest sites found on mainland Australia, the wine was matured for three months on lees. There seems to be a little more punch and lift here, than in many currently available Pinot Gris. A pale straw hue, we have aromas of crisp nashi pears, florals, rose petals, ginger, apples, even a confectionary hint, with a minerally backing providing support. There is good acidity here, a firm texture and a persistent finish. This has at least two to three more years of drinking well ahead of it, quite possibly more.
