De Bortoli Willowglen Pinot Grigio: A Delightful Australian Expression

Hailing from the Riverina region of Australia, De Bortoli Willowglen Pinot Grigio presents a refreshingly approachable alternative to the familiar Italian style. This delightful white wine offers a unique flavour profile and excellent pairing versatility, making it a fantastic addition to any wine collection.

Tasting Notes

  • Appearance: Pale straw yellow with a subtle green tinge.
  • Nose: Vibrant aromas of crisp green apple, pear, and a hint of citrus blossom. Subtle notes of stone fruit emerge as the wine warms.
  • Palate: Lively acidity greets the palate, followed by flavours mirroring the aromas. Green apple and pear dominate, with a touch of white peach and a hint of minerality on the mid-palate. The finish is clean, crisp, and refreshing.

Food Pairings

De Bortoli Willowglen Pinot Grigio's versatility makes it a superb food companion.  Here are some ideal matches:

  • Salads: Ideal with summery salads. Think green salads with vinaigrette, chicken Caesar salad, or a Niçoise salad.
  • Light Appetisers: Enjoy as an aperitif with light canapes like bruschetta with fresh tomatoes, antipasti platters, or a creamy goat cheese spread.
  • Spicy Asian Dishes: The wine's slight sweetness and vibrant acidity can balance the heat in mild to moderately spicy Asian dishes like Thai green curry or Vietnamese summer rolls.
