Patritti Pinot Grigio 2023 South Australia Adelaide Hills

$19.95

Patritti Pinot Grigio 2023

Light pale straw in colour. On the nose aromas of pear skin, white peach, and apple lift from the glass. The palate is light, crisp, and balanced in the grigio style. Citrus, peach, and pear flavours persist with the long refreshing finish.

Giovanni Patritti was among the first Italian immigrants to arrive in South Australia. In 1925, a 25 year old Giovanni boarded a ship at the port of Genoa and left his Piedmontese village of Carru for a brighter future. He believed he was on his way to America to meet his sister. Instead he landed at Port Adelaide, South Australia, on the 28th of April, 1926. With not a word of English, Giovanni still managed to swiftly gain employment. He changed his Italian name to the more ‘Australian’ John, and after a number of different jobs, began selling ice-cream at the gates of the Botanic Gardens in Adelaide. Just one year later, Giovanni was leasing vineyards in the Brighton District, 15km south of Adelaide City (now the City of Marion), and making wine for the ‘new Australians’.

By the late 1920s Giovanni owned a number of acres of vineyard and had built a winery with his best friend, Cristiano (Jimmy) Bissacca. From the late 1920s until the 1960s, Patritti predominantly produced dry red table wines and fortified wines. Since the late 2000s, Patritti has shifted their focus towards premium wines and adopted ‘new’ and rare grape varieties, adding depth and diversity to an already extensive range.
