Pinot Grigio is the Italian name for the variety known as Pinot Gris in France. This wine is a cool climate example from Eden Valley where the clean natural acidity has been naturally preserved to give the wine a delicacy and freshness typical of some northern Italian Pinot Grigio’s.
A pale straw colour gives way to aromas of tart apple, nashi pear and a hint of spice on the nose. The palate is soft and delicate with subtle notes of citrus and melon with a crisp, pear like acidity which is ultimately refreshing and true to style.
Hand-Picked early in the morning, the fruit was delivered cool to the winery. Gentle pressing to minimise phenolics and cold settling preceded a long, cool fermentation averaging 14°C. The fermentation was left to run its course over 14 days leaving a naturally clean, crisp vibrant wine.
