Sibling Rivalry Pinot Gris 2012
Pinot Gris/Grigio from Victoria, Australia
The Sibling Rivalry Pinot Gris has led us to Victoria's High Country and the cool climate region of King Valley. The aromas are lifted citrus, green apple, white peach and pear with spicy nuances. The palate is medium bodied with flavors of honeysuckle and pear supported by a mineral flintiness and finishing with beautiful crunchy acidity.
Australian Wine Companion - "Pale pink tinge; has more drive and interest to its palate than many other more expensive pinot gris thanks to the bright acidity on the finish that follows pear, peach and apple aromas and flavours."

About AustraliaLike the United States, which is about the same size, Australia's winemaking regions are huddled into one or two pockets of the country. The state of South Australia, which produces about 60% of the country's wine, also has the most wineries and sub-regions, including McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley. New South Wales is home to the Hunter Valley, while the smaller, southern state of Victoria is best known for theYarra Valley. Head way west to the very large state of Western Australia and you'll find the tiny region of Margaret River at the southern tip.
