Yalumba Y Series Lighter Pinot Grigio 2023


Lighter alcohol wines are all the range, so no matter what the old dinosaurs may think, time to get on the bandwagon and give them a go. The styles are lighter, fresh and with appealing flavours and there are times when if one did not know they were reduced in alcohol, one might not guess it. The wines are sitting at just 7% and great for a lunch to allow a second glass. This Pinot Grigio was my pick with a pale yellow colour and offering a bronze tinge, as one does sometimes see with this grape. Florals and pears on the nose with a vibrant palate supported by fresh acidity. The wine is mid-length at best and a little simple, but it is very easy to enjoy. No point in cellaring, just chill and get stuck in.
