In a Nutshell
Fantastic Pinot Grigio made using the ramato method.
This wine is soft pink in colour with copper highlights, a characteristic of this varietal. It is fresh and floral on the nose, with aromas of apples, pears and elderflower. On the palate, it has an apple and pineapple character with a lively, lifted finish and hints of freshly-baked bread.
The grapes were hand harvested between the 15th and the 20th of September, then softly crushed and cooled immediately to 7-8ºC. Cool maceration on the skins took place for 72 hours prior to fermentation on the skins for three days in stainless-steel tanks. 80% of the wine was aged in stainless-steel tanks, while 20% was aged in 500 litre oak barrels, with lees stirring for both components every 20 days. After eight months, the components were blended together and bottled.
