Nashi pear, Granny Smith apple and rose petal. That’s what we’ve come to expect from good Peninsula Grigio. A crisp, refreshing and moorish wine with lovely mouthfeel. The newly released 2016 Pennon Hill Pinot Grigio, once again, ticks all the boxes! And there is nothing better than enjoying a glass or two with a light zesty fresh crab salad.
Pennon Hill Pinot Grigio Pack
Grape Variety – Pinot Grigio
Region – Mornington Peninsula Victoria
Vintage – 2016
Winery – Montalto
Profile – light bodied, bright, crisp
Montalto founders and owners John and Wendy Mitchell initially planned a small vineyard by the coast. A place to relive earlier years spent holidaying with friends in Southern France. But John’s love of the outdoors, his interest in viticulture and corporate knowledge soon combined to grow Montalto into one of the Mornington Peninsula’s most popular destinations. Accolades such as “Best Winery Tourism Destination” from Gourmet Traveller magazine, soon followed. True cool climate characteristics abound in the wines, which have received multiple awards on the Australian Show circuit. Another 5 red star rated winery from James Halliday.
