Without being completely disparaging to many of the market leaders, there is Pinot Gris and there is Pinot Gris. By that we mean that the best selling, mass produced examples serve a purpose but can hardly be considered the best of their variety. The collection features 3 bottles each of 4 of the best examples of Pinot Gris in one single box that have scored 93 points or better from Australia's leading wine critics.

The StarDozen consists of the following:

3 bottles      Hahndorf Hill Pinot Grigio 2018
3 bottles      Stefano Lubiana Pinot Gris 2019
3 bottles      Mr Riggs Brightside Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris 2018
3 bottles      Hoddles Creek Pinot Gris 2019

 

Hahndorf Hill Pinot Grigio 2018
From three vineyards, the fruit chilled and whole-bunch pressed, the wine cool-fermented and racked as quickly as possible, with no lees contact. Quartz-white, musk/pear/lifesaver scents, the palate remarkably intense and long. Three gold medals, trophy WineWise. A serious wine of high quality. Drink by: 2023; Price: $25.00; Date Tasted: Dec 2018; Alcohol: 12%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday; Wine Companion

Stefano Lubiana Pinot Gris 2019
2018 Review: Surely one of the best Pinot Gris in the country? I’d have Brian, Hoddles Creek and a few others in that list too. Texture, texture, texture. Full colour, kind of burnished copper or something like that. Aromatic with musk, brown pear, some spice. Good amount of flavour, powdery texture offers grip, just-right acidity, dry, savoury and serious feel, yet still pretty. Long with it. Top shelf. Love this wine. Tasted: Jan 19; Alcohol: 13.5%; Price: $30; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2019-2024+; Rated: 94 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front

Mr Riggs Brightside Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris 2018
Fermented in tank and barrel with wild and cultured yeast, no new oak. It's very complex in texture and structure, its savoury, citrussy green apple pith and skin making an emphatic statement that well made pinot gris can be a real wine of real quality, not just a hit and giggle lunch wine. Drink to: 2023; Price: $20.00; Date Tasted: Dec 2018; Alcohol: 12.5%; Rating: 94 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

Hoddles Creek Pinot Gris 2019
Franco, bless him, makes a proper Pinot Gris. Seven days on skins here, although it could go more. A week’s not a long time in the world of wine. Beurre bosc pears, and their skin texture with it, peach and strawberry, a little spice and musky perfume. It’s fresh and crisp, but soft and flavoursome too, you can almost imagine it drizzling down your chin as you drink, skinsy tannin shapes the finish, and bright acidity too. Bloody good. Bargain. Tasted: Sept 19; Alcohol: 13%; Price: $23; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2019-2023; Rated: 93 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
