ITALIAN STYLE PINOT GRIGIO

TASTING NOTES

This fresh and food-friendly Pinot Grigio is fragrant of pear and white flowers. It has delicate fruit flavours with mineral notes and a mouth-watering crisp finish.

 

SEASON

The winter of 2017-18 was a very mild one; some say it began and ended in a few weeks of February. Bud burst was early, then warm, dry weather during flowering encouraged good fruit set. A merciful lack of frost in late spring and low disease pressure due to continuing warm, dry weather had vignerons smiling with relief after the difficult 2017 vintage. All was well and the season was tracking ahead of averages when hail storms hit in early July. The rest of the season was warm, climaxing in an early harvest of good quality fruit with great depth of flavour. 

WINEMAKING

With this wine we aim for preserving fresh fruit flavours and lively natural acidity. The juice was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks and matured briefly in tank before bottling. It is best enjoyed fresh and is ready to drink now.
