Halliday Wine Companion Review – 2016 Bestia Mornington Peninsula Pinot Grigio
“Not your average Joe. 30% whole bunch, wild ferment, pressed 30 days from harvest, matured for 12 months in oak. It’s a burnished, rusty, crimson, orange-like colour. It’s textural in the mouth but not to an exaggerated degree.
It treads lightly as it trips through the mouth, each step careful but fluent. It tastes of oranges and pears, woodsy spices and strawberry sorbet. Wood smoke too. It takes a few mouthfuls to adjust to its way of thinking.”
