2022 The Pawn Wine Co El Desperado Pinot Grigio Adelaide Hills – The first ever Vintage of El Desperado was 2011, and will always be known in Australian wine history as the vintage from hell, as many vineyards succumb to the wet summer. For the Pawn, they sacrificed making their full range of wines that year to create a brand new style of wine. Although they did not set out to make the El Desperado before that vintage, when you taste this wine, by hell you will be glad they did.
This wine shows aromas of melons and pears with a subtle hint of tropical and citrus fruits. It has an intense aroma of fresh-cut pear and cling-stone peach accented by citrus blossom and soft floral notes. It has aromas of rock melon, citrus blossom and soft floral notes of acacia flower and sea spray.
On the palate the texture is very smooth, with juicy Nashi pear, Honeydew melon and lemon sherbet flavours all entwined with a middle palate viscos-ity that makes it both refreshing, soft and juicy. It is almost silk-like with over-tones of almonds and acacia flowers, citrus and spice and just enough natural acidity to give a clean crisp finish.
