Hentley Farm Brass Monkey Vineyards Pinot Grigio 2016

This is the fourth release of this Pinot Grigio but my first look at it. Half was fermented in stainless steel and the remainder in oak with lees contact. The texture and creaminess from the later is evident.

Lemons, pears and a dash of ginger. The mid-palate is creamy and there is a subtle hint of saltiness with a minerally edge. Citrus fruit drives late again leaving a tang before finishing clean and crisp. Good drinking.

Sunshine, lunch time and spring shouldn't be too far from here.

Drink now.

90/100 - Very good.
