Tenafeate Creek Wines Sparkling Pinot Grigio 2015

There's not many sparkling Pinot Grigio wines around the traps so this makes for an interesting wine from the outset. The fruit is sourced from a single vineyard in the Eden Valley and carbonated in a tank.

This retains the copper like appearance of the table Pinot Grigio with more of a strawberry/salmon type shade.

Smells of pear skin, cut apple and has a lemony twist. Crisp acidity drives the wine leaving a refreshing impression. Simple yet tasty stuff. The label says it would be a good aperitif and I would have to agree.

400 dozen were produced and I reckon this would move pretty easily during the warmer months. Available online or at the cellar door.

Good.
