Vinea Marson Grazia 2012

A journey of Italy from country Victoria

A blend of Pinot Bianco, Malvasia d'Istria and Friulano (36/36/28), it's golden sunrise like in appearance and throws out aromas of apricot, pear and a smidge of honeysuckle. Delivery is rich and generous, with nuts and a delicate spice vibe. There's some serious hang time here too as the spice just hums away.

It may not be everyone's cup of tea but there's more than a few who would jump to this style.

92/100 - Very good.

Region: Various - Victoria
RRP: $24

Calabria Family Wines Pinot Bianco 2012

I was pretty happy with this. Actually I was very happy!

There is plenty of textural interest which rolls into a super long finish. In the middle of all that there is impressive fruit highlighted by creaminess and melon characters which coat the palate generously.

These Calabria Family Wines are fabulous and once again priced humbly at $15. Gotta be happy with that.

Who: Calabria Family Wines
What: Pinot Bianco (13% alc)
