2019 Angullong Pinot Grigio

TROPHY, Best Pinot Grigio of Show, 2019 Australian Highlands Wine Show

90 POINTS, Huon Hooke.   //  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.

TROPHY, Best Pinot Grigio of Show, 2019 Australian Highlands Wine Show

Gold Medal, 2019 Australian Highlands Wine Show

Gold Medal , 2019 NSW Wine Awards

“Ben Crossing and the Angullong team have released a pair of their multi-Trophy winning whites from the Orange region.  The instigation of sustainable vineyard management practices have brought out the best of their vines, reflected in those two whites. This 2019 Pinot Grigio, winner of 2 Gold Medals and Trophy for Best Pinot Gris / Grigio at the recent Australian Highlands Wine Show, is a testament to the quality of the product.  It opens up with a burst of lively freshness and a delivery of crisp primary fruit flavours in the pear / quince spectrum with a waft of marzipan.  This is supported by citrussy acid savouriness and an enticing back palate of ongoing sweet fruit ripeness.  It is a very approachable, refrshingly cheerful Pinot Grigio which is eminently quaffable by itself but also a palate-pleasing accompaniment to our entree of artichoke & rocket salad. One to be enjoyed whilst energetically refreshing.”

WINE OF THE WEEK.  An absolute ripper dry white which also has a gold medal from the this year’s NSW Wine Awards. It has everything — flavour, length, balance, poise. It’s pure class and easily the best grigio I’ve tried all year. Drink it with quite flavoursome white meats served with a rich sauce. It has sufficient oomph to carry that sort of food.”
