Eddie McDougall Pinot Grigio 2017
Aromas of white peach, pears and crushed almond meal. Crisp, refreshing and driven with a citrus acid line on the palate. Balanced nicely with some waxy viscosity and sprinkle of sea salt minerality. Pair with a Dim Sum selection.

Harvested in the cool periods of sunrise our Pinot Grigio is designed to capture the essence of freshness. The fruit is carefully handled to ensure the perfect extraction of texture, flavour and aromas. Pressed and fermented at low temperatures this wine is given every opportunity to retain its purity and expression of place.
To recognize the region where he produces most his wines, Eddie McDougall decided the most suitable logo for his wines made there would be a gold foil crown. Eddie is not claiming to be the king but he wants the world to know something about the prestige of the region where his wines hail from. Proud of King Valley and excited by its Italian heritage, Eddie continues to source grapes from top growers in the region in order to produce wines that are genuinely approachable and definitive of the region’s varietals.
