David Hook 2018 Pinot Grigio

David Hook – Hookie to his mates – planted vines on his family grazing property near Belford in the early 1980s. You will find the charming cellar door, run by his partner-in-crime Sherry Watt, in central Pokolbin as part of the Peppers Creek complex. To clarify the confusion, Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris are actually the same variety. Grigio is found in northern Italy, while Gris hails from Alsace in NE France. In Australia, wine made in the crisp Italian style is labeled Pinot Grigio, with the richer, riper French styles bear the Pinot Gris title. This crisp, apply white is full of flavour but with enough freshness to make it an extremely versatile drink-right-now kind of wine. RRP: $19 | davidhookwines.com.au
