SOUTH Australia's boutique Fox Gordon is winning growing numbers of admirers with its range of reds and whites out of the Barossa Valley and Adelaide Hills, with a 2014 Pinot Grigio from the latter a rewarding example of what a hands-on small family maker can achieve with a variety like this.

Winemaker Tash Mooney has crafted in this a wine that's got lovely varietal pear and apple flavours along with a captivating hint of lime, and one that's sure to appeal to the fast-growing ranks of Pinot Grigio enthusiasts in this country – as in so many others across the world as well, as the variety charges forward in its pursuit of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc to be the world's best-selling white.

Founded relatively recently in the 1990s, Fox Gordon is also well on the road to achieving its owners' dream to come up with premium Barossa Valley and Adelaide Hills wines that will one day sit amongst the greatest of international brands as measured by value and enjoyment.

Pay $19.95 and match this very moreish Pinot Grigio with shellfish or Italian-inspired chicken dishes; available from select premium liquor outlets or check out for State distributors and cellar door contacts.
