2017 Angullong Pinot Grigio

The 2017 vintage was one of the longest on record at Angullong. With cooler than average temperatures through spring and early summer, vine growth and bunch development were delayed. Harvest was later, working out well for the aromatic white varieties as they ripened consistently during autumn, which is characteristic of the Orange region. The resulting Angullong Pinot Grigio is a vibrant and crisp wine with cool climate varietal flavours of pear, honey and melon with linear acidity and lovely balance. It is a wine for all occasions.

“Walk through an apple orchard on a crisp, cool morning and bite into a nice big apple. That’s the style reflected by this lively fresh white, which also presents some nice pear overtones. 92/100” Queensland Times, Peter Chapman, Oct 2017:

Telegraph, John Fordham, Oct 2017:
“This easy-drinking palate pleaser from Orange emphatically shows why this variety and its sidekick pinot gris are winning such approval from adventurous new-age consumers. There’s an abundance of fresh fruit flavours on display, making it an ideal summer wine with food or on its own.”

“Beautiful lively aromas, crisp light bodied, tight flavoured with a refreshing finish. A great example of the Grigio style. EXCELLENT.”


The Grape Hunter,
Gilbert Labour, Aug 2017:
“Angullong’s winemaking team of Ben Crossing and Jon Reynolds continues to produce good value, no-nonsense wines amply reflective of their Australian cool climate varietal typicity. This Angullong 2017 Pinot Grigio ticks all the boxes of bright mouth-filling fruit freshness. The palate shows a spectrum of pear & citrus flavours with a hint of rose petals. The long palate savouriness is well supported by crisp jubey acid backbone. This is another very enjoyable, refreshing wine of its genre well suited to our lunch of freshly shucked south coast oysters and chicken salad.”

, John Rozentals, Aug 2017:
“A vibrant, crisp dry white in the true Italian grigio style but with ample palate flavour for its price tag. I like its melon-like flavours and heartily recommend it both as an aperitif and an accompaniment to light chicken dish.”

National Liquor News, Nov 2017: “A vibrant and crisp wine with cool climate varietal flavours or pear, honey and melon with linear acidity and lovely balance…”

The Grape Observer, Dec 2017: “Pale in colour with a slight pink hue. Typical pinot gris. A medium intensity aromas of pears on the nose. The palate is between medium and full bodied with no oak influence and a stoney, minerally expression of citrus fruits and pear and an acid zing on the tail. A good example of cool climate pinot grigio. Rating: Good.”
