An approachable wine which is made to match food. Some nutty, slight cashew aromas to it but not much else bursting into the nasal cavity.
Some textural interest is provided with pear and honey type flavours. There is a slight spice tickle courtesy of the Pinot Grigio, and with that, the Vermentino component plays very much second fiddle.
Readily available and often cheaper than the stated RRP of $18.
Chill is down to icy cold and have a with whiting or calamari.
