    Winemaker Notes

    With a dash of Arneis, this Pinot Grigio is pale in colour with hints of rose gold. Intense aromas of orange blossom, rock melon and spice jump from the glass. The palate is sleek and fresh with delicate citrus and tropical fruit notes and great length of flavour.

    Fowles Wine, Australia
    Image of winery
    Fowles Wine is based in the one of the coolest regions in Australia – the Strathbogie Ranges of Victoria. The winery is perched on an ancient plateau 80 miles north of Melbourne, surrounded by massive granite boulders. The decomposed granite based soils are up to 450 million years old and very nutrient poor, and it is these conditions which makes the 20+ year old vines work so hard, helping to producing wines with great intensity: elevated aromas, deep flavors and all underlined by lovely natural acidity.

    100% family owned, Fowles Wine has won many of Australia’s most prestigious wine medals and trophies. It recently achieved the highest possible classification of FIVE RED STARS in the James Halliday Wine Companion – Australia’s most revered wine critic. In fact, Fowles Wine has been named a “Winery to Watch” in Wine Spectator and was also included in Top 100 Wines of 2014.

    Fowles Wine is obsessed with blending wines to complement food. Stemming from Matt Fowles’ love of growing, foraging and even hunting food, Fowles has crafted different wines to complement the different types of meat. The Ladies who Shoot their Lunch and Are you Game? wines are crafted to complement wild game meat (which is lean and dense) and the Farm to Table range is crafted to complement farmed meat (which has more fat and a softer texture).

    These wines represent the best of the next generation from Australia.

    Australia

    A large, climatically diverse country producing just about every wine style imaginable, Australia is often misunderstood by consumers. It is not just a source of blockbuster Shiraz or inexpensive wine with cute critters on the label, though both can certainly be found here. It is impossible to make generalizations about a country this physically massive, but most regions are concentrated in the south of the country and experience either warm, dry weather, or more humid, tropical influence. Australia has for several decades been at the forefront of winemaking technology and has widely adopted the use of screwcaps, even for some premium and ultra-premium bottles.

    Shiraz is indeed Australia’s most celebrated and widely planted variety, typically producing bold, supple reds with sweet, jammy fruit and performing best in the Barossa and Hunter Valleys. Cabernet Sauvignon is often blended with Shiraz, and also shines on its own particularly in Coonawarra and Margaret River. Grenache and Mourvèdre (often locally referred to as Mataro) are also popular, both on their own and alongside Shiraz in Rhône blends. Chardonnay is common throughout the country and made in a wide range of styles. Sauvignon Blanc has recently surged in popularity to compete with New Zealand’s distinctive version, and Semillon is often utilized as its blending partner, or in the Hunter Valley, on its own to make complex, age-worthy whites. Riesling thrives in the cool-climate Clare and Eden Valleys. Sticky-sweet fortified wine Rutherglen Muscat is a beloved regional specialty of Victoria. Thanks to the country’s relatively agreeable climate throughout and the openness of its people, experimentation is common and ongoing and there is a vast array of intriguing varieties to be found.

    Pinot Gris/Grigio

    View all wine

    One grape variety with two very distinct personas, Pinot Gris in France is rich, round, and aromatic, while Pinot Grigio in Italy is simple, crisp, and refreshing. In Italy, Pinot Grigio is grown in the mountainous regions of Trentino, Friuli, and Alto Adige in the northeast. In France it reaches its apex in Alsace. Pinots both “Gris” and “Grigio” are produced successfully in Oregon's Willamette Valley as well as parts of California, and are widely planted throughout central and eastern Europe.

    In the Glass

    Pinot Gris is naturally low in acidity, so full ripeness is necessary to achieve and showcase its signature flavors and aromas of stone fruit, citrus, honeysuckle, pear, and almond skin. Alsatian styles are aromatic, richly textured and often relatively high in alcohol. As Pinot Grigio in Italy, the style is much more subdued, light, simple, and easy to drink.

    Perfect Pairings

    Alsace is renowned for its potent food–pork, foie gras, and charcuterie. With its viscous nature, Pinot Gris fits in harmoniously with these heavy hitters. Pinot Grigio, on the other hand, with its lean, crisp, citrusy freshness, works better with simple salads, a wide range of seafood, and subtle chicken dishes.

    Sommelier Secret

    Outside of France and Italy, the decision by the producer whether to label as “Gris” or “Grigio” serves as a strong indicator as to the style of wine in the bottle—the former will typically be a richer, more serious rendition while the latter will be bright, fresh, and fun.
