Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes were picked by hand, de-stemmed and crushed before undergoing a cool fermentation in steel tanks. The wine underwent an extended maceration on its lees. A portion of this wine (approximately 5%) was made using the traditional passito method, whereby the grapes were harvested and left to dry on straw mats for several weeks. Once dehydrated they were gently pressed and fermented. This wine was then blended back into the overall wine, giving this Pinot Grigio a level of depth and complexity.

Tasting Notes:

Our Pinot Grigio is full with a nose that shows hints of pineapple, pears and sweet lemons. The body is full and gives way to a creamy mid-palate, integrating tropical fruits with the vibrant zing of citrus fruits. It is reminiscent of a pineapple upside down cupcake.
