Holly’s Garden, Pinot Grigio Friulano, Moondarra, VIC – 2018
Pinot Grigio and Friulano are a classic duo often seen pouring in their home of Northern Italy, so it makes sense that it is a blend which the winemakers at Moondarra vineyards would play with for their limited edition run. The lively and fruit-driven Friulano (a perfumed and expressive grape from Friuli-Venezia-Giulia, Italy) joins an Aussie household favorite – Pinot Grigio, to create an individual standout wine for a equally noticeable price. The light, crisp and citrusy Grigio is injected with the honeyed apricot and vanilla musk of the Friulano to produce a complex expression with lush aromas, a unique palate and golden hue. For such a new and individual wine experience, you’d be expecting to pay alot more than this Holly’s garden sits on the shelf for, especially considering the small amount available.
