Zonte's Footstep 2013 Doctoressa di Lago Pinot Grigio

Another wine with a crazy name from the fun-loving crew at Zonte's Footstep, who source fruit from vineyards across South Australia. It is named after the "Lake Doctor", a wind that causes temperatures to drop late in the day at Lake Alexandrina, which is overlooked by the Adelaide Hills vineyard from which the fruit is sourced for this really lovely pinot grigio; crisp and fresh, zingy and delicious. There is some really lovely acid here - it's sharper than Christopher Pyne's tongue - but also some softness with delightful ripe pear notes. A terrific summer wine, with or without food, and outrageously good value at $18.
