The Trickster Pinot Grigio
Hugh Hamilton Wines have become stars here in Hong Kong! As a small batch producer Hugh takes pride in every single bottle he producers - with his name and signature a representation of his passion. Genuine kit!
If this wine were a hat (which it's not), it would be a Chiquita (Remember Carmen Miranda?). Not to be confused with a Pinot ‘Gris’ style wine, this is very clearly a Pinot ‘Grigio’ style. Why? Because the fruit was deliberately picked at the lower end of its acceptable range to retain the quintessential crisp, light, fine qualities of both the variety and the region. It’s crisper and drier than your average Gris.
It's pale straw in colour, crisp, lively and dry and ready to be enjoyed young. You'll get fresh pears, apples, nectarine and honeydew melon on the nose with hints of basil and lemongrass and a full-flavoured palate with crisp acidity. Think seafood of any kind and particularly oysters.
