Borachio Pinot Grigio 2019Borachio
Origin: Adelaide Hills, South Australia
Grape: Pinot Grigio
Equal parts whole bunches and direct pressed juice, macerated for a couple of weeks - gentle gentle, no agro. Some direct pressed wine blended in to add freshness. Bright orange in colour, apricots and concentrated white peach. Moreish acidity with a lick of tannin driving it home.
Borachio - A skin for holding wine, commonly a goat's; also a nick name for a drunkard. Job redundancies make you want to make wine. But quitting city life and giving the 9-5 the iddle finger altogether does wonders. Mark and Alicia started Borachio after landing in the Adelaide Hills, working with wine makers who shared their interests. Their unadulterated wines are wild and free, but hands on and focused. All wines are made from fruit grown to organic standards, hand picked and turned into wine free of any additions or subtractions.
