Ludic Pinot Grigio 2020
- Light, aromatic
- King Valley
Ludic means ‘showing spontaneous and undirected playfulness’. I can’t believe I haven’t been called this before now. It’s ludicrous. From Australia’s unofficial home of the Italian varieties, King Valley, comes a properly flavoursome wine - you’ll get pear, stone fruits and citrus, plus minerality and a lively texture. Playful this wine is indeed - whether it’s Trivial Pursuit or backyard cricket - this wine will be a good match.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

The region of King Valley is as impressive as its name. With a magnificent vineyard area covering 1,800ha, it represents half of all the plantings in North East Victoria. Celebrated for its innovative varietals, covering all corners of the globe - from Spain, to Germany, France, Russia and more famously Italy, it's this point of difference that has made the area such a revered Aussie wine region. Gentle slopes, warm days and cool nights make it an ideal area to produce Mediterranean varieties such as Nebbiolo, Sangiovese and Prosecco amongst many other out-of-the-box wines - talk about La Dolce Vita!
The rules are there ain’t no rules, but here are some foods we think will work pretty well with this wine...
Fish and chips
- 5 slices wholegrain bread, crusts removed
- flour, for dusting
- 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
- 4 firm white fish fillets, trimmed with bones removed
- 4 medium potatoes, skin on, cut into wedges
- salt and cracked black pepper
- 1/2 cup (140g) Greek yoghurt
- 1 tablespoon chopped dill
- 1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
- lemon wedges, to serve
- Preheat oven to 180°C. Place the bread in a food processor and process until finely crumbed. Transfer to a large plate.
- Place the flour and egg white in separate bowls. Dust the fish, one at a time, in the flour, dip into the egg white, then roll in the breadcrumbs. Place fish on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper. Cover and refrigerate until required.
- Meanwhile place the potato on a baking tray lined with non-stick paper and spray with olive oil spray. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Cook for 15-20 minutes. Toss and return to the oven until golden and cooked through.
- Combine the yoghurt, dill and parsley and refrigerate until needed.
- Place the fish on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper and place in the oven with the wedges. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden and fish flakes easily when tested with a fork in the thickest part. Serve immediately with the yoghurt dip and lemon wedges.
