PINOT GRIS 2019
Aromas of melon and apricot swirl out of the glass with light notes of orange blossom. Honey and subtle notes of almond add complexity to the bouquet. The aromas carry to the palate in this lighter-bodied, easy drinking Pinot.
Fish and shellfish dishes, poultry, cured meats with firm cheeses, grilled zucchini with honey drizzle.
Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio (Pee-noh GREE-gee-oh) are actually the same grape, Pinot Gris is native to Alsace France and Pinot Gris native to Italy. Even though they are the same grape, a clone (colour mutant) of Pinot Noir they are capable of producing a variety of white wines in a number of wine growing regions. Styles range from crisp and fresh (Italy) to spicy, exotic and full bodied (Alsace). With an aromatic profile of citrus, pears, apples, nuts, mineral and honey.
This Pinot Gris was fermented on the skins for 7 days during this time the wine pulled a gorgeous copper hue. Despite the rich colour this is a very easy drinking wine. Lots of melon notes and sweeter orange blossom, balanced acidity and barley off dry at 11g/L residual sugar. Great sipping wine on a sunny day – pairs with lots of different food and great with antipasto or light noshes
