Ninth Island Tasmania Pinot Grigio

True grigio should be tangy and lively, and Ninth Island consistently nails the style at a better price than most. This refreshing, tangy apéritif captures the crunch and tang of cool vineyards in Tasmania’s north. Nashi pear, lemon and grapefruit are the themes, impeccably preserved through fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Perfect for summertime al fresco seafood. $12.50 at Liquorland Direct (2012), $17 at Winecave, Corkscrew Cellars (2013).
