16 Little Black Pigs Pinot Grigio 2013

16 Little Black Pigs Pinot Grigio 2013

  • Fresh-as-a-daisy alternative to the Italian variety we all know and love.
  • Unoaked for maximum refreshment.
  • Comes with that original Big Black Pig provenance - these are said beast's piglets!

It's a wonderful thing when a good idea is exported and becomes something not only different, but just a little better too. So it is here, with our Down Under version of the Italian classic that we are all addicted to. This has turned out beautifully, sporting lovely lemon-fresh fruit with crisp-apple vitality, born in the spirit of the La Dolce Vita, and ready to be drunk as an aperitif or with white fish.

Andrew Baker talks about 16 Little Black Pigs Pinot Grigio.

"Whip this exuberant gem out for BBQs, lighter meals or for quaffing on its own."

Winemaker: Steve Grimley

Country: Australia

Steve Grimley has vast winemaking experience that spans 3 continents and an unbridled energy that has seen his small, family-owned winery quickly establish an enviable reputation. He's passionate about Single Vineyards and the personalities involved within them and constantly seeking unique parcels of fruit to further expand our bulging portfolio of wines. His immense knowledge of the great wines of the world ensures the continued evolution of our range and is the fuel from which our fire is lit.

"To me, a truly great wine is more about the sizzle than the sausage. I grew up in the Barossa, so wine's pretty much part of your culture from day one. Given our type of business, the styles of wine we make and my individual personality, all these combine to drive us down the 'winemaking way of one'. It's easy to manipulate, but when you leave things alone they just represent what they are - the variety, origin and working patterns, stored in a bottle." - Steve Grimley

Cal y Canto Viura Verdejo 2013

Abadia Mercier Viura Verdejo 2011

Type: Viura blend

Try something on the white side of Spanish wine - and what better place to start than with a refreshingly fruity Viura and Verdejo blend. Accentuate the flavours of this white by tucking into some delicious king prawns or smoked salmon nibbles.

Bel Olivier Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Bel Olivier Sauvignon Blanc French White Wine

Type: Sauvignon Blanc

A great example of caring about the wine, not the label. It is not Sancerre or Kiwi Sauvignon. It is Languedoc Sauvignon. And that label carries no cost implication, so it's a bit of a bargain.

Hummingbird Verdelho Semillon 2013

Humming Bird Semillon Verdelho Australian White wine

Type: Semillon blend

Semillon, one of the duo of grapes that makes the great sweet wines of Bordeaux, finds a whole new meaning here in Oz. This is a wonderful yet somewhat unorthodox, blend of Semillon and Verdelho made by the brilliant Geoff Hardy.
