Amazing Alternative Varieties Dozen Offer!
Two wine grape varieties fast becoming a beverage staple rather than alternative are Pinot Gris and Tempranillo. If you are well acquainted with these exciting varieties, or new to experiencing the duo, here is your chance to acquire some quality examples and expand the flavour assortment in your cellar!
Versatility is the hallmark of Pinot Gris. ‘Gris’ being French for ‘grey’, describing the greyish colouring of the grape berries, interestingly, as this wine is made as a white wine. To achieve this, the juice is removed from its ‘coloured’ grape skins immediately, inheriting only a hint of its vine borne hue. A popular style in the Alsace region (as it is Mudgee!), the wine is made with fruit on the riper spectrum end, often to retain natural grape sugars depending on the style. When made in this way (like Bunnamagoo’s 2020), the ripe flavours balance beautifully with fresh acidity for a suave and complex wine. In a nod to versatility, Pinot Grigio is yet another style using this very same grape variety made popular in Northern Italy. While similarly delicious, wines in this style are picked younger and show crisper and more linear fruit expression in comparison.
Tempranillo is a red gem from the Iberian Peninsula. There, this red variety forms the foundation of the famous Spanish style Rioja (pronounced ree-oy-yuh), while in neighbouring Portugal, where it is known as Tinta Roriz or Aragonéz, the variety is either made into lush dry red table wines, or the luscious Vintage Ports of the Douro. Hence, Tempranillo is incredibly popular due to its generosity of flavour and adaptability.
