The name of our classic, multi-regional Italian style varieties comes from the charming old Italian folk story. There's many story variations on why the Pinocchio name is used for our Italian wines, but one thing is certain - Garry’s love of Italian varieties is so strong he even wrote a book on their suitability to Australian climates.
Intriguing is its beguiling nose of lychees and gin-ger, the delicious frizzante (fizz) it carries and the refreshing spine of acidity that cuts through the sweetness of the unfermented grape sugar.
This wine shows all of the classic 'Grigio' characters both on the nose and in the mouth.
Rose is one of the most versatile and enjoyable styles around, offering as it does a great compliment to Asian dishes or just a refreshing drink on a hot summer’s day.
The distinguishing character of Sangiovese is that of savouriness followed by bitter (morello) cherries - traits which are more than abundant in our Pinocchio version.
