Pinot Grigio grapes have a light colouration of the skin, unusual for a white varietal. This tint can be seen in the finest Pinot Grigios as a delicate copper tinge when yields have been kept low and therefore concentration is good. To make this Pinot Grigio blush, the grapes are crushed upon reception at the winery and instead of separating immediately from the skins the must is left to cold macerate with the skins before fermentation in temperature controlled steel tanks. The different parcels undergo various lengths of skin maceration and the final wine is a blend of these various component parts. There is no oak used at all and fining, stabilisation and bottling are all carried out in the most hygienic conditions on site at the winery, eradicating any risks of spoilage due to transportation or a third party.
Salmon pink in colour with an aromatic nose of freshly crushed cranberries and mineral elements. The palate is light, dry and crisp, with a delicious balance between zingy citrus and fruity red berry flavours. Very easy to drink, finishing clean and refreshing.
This is the perfect summer drinking wine. It is deliciously refreshing by itself and ideally partners salads and fish but can also be drunk with grilled or barbecued red or white meat, pizza and pasta due to its versatility.
