Graffigna Pinot Grigio Centenario White 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

WINEMAKING To ensure optimal quality of this 100% Pinot Grigio, all the grapes were picked by hand and harvesting was done in the early hours of the morning, when the temperature is cool. The grapes were then carried from the vineyards in small crates where they remained until they reached the press, in order to avoid crushing. After harvest, the Pinot Grigio grapes were gently pressed at low temperatures in order to obtain the clean, bright yellow juice that is characteristic of this variety, as well as maintain its delicate aromas. Following fermentation in 100% stainless steel tanks, malo-lactic fermentation was inhibited and no oak ageing was used. The result is a very harmonious, fresh and crisp wine, full of floral and citrus notes.

  Graffigna, with a winemaking tradition that spans 140 years, has the honor of being the oldest winery in the Argentine province of San Juan, the second oldest in the country and the first winery in Argentina to sell branded wines. Today, Graffigna is one of Pernod Ricard's four global wine brands and iconic of Argentina's progress as a quality wine producer. In recent years, as part of our philosophy of continuous improvement, Graffigna launched a viticulture study and development process in San Juan with the support of an international team of experts led by Victor Marcantoni and with the consultancy of renowned winemaker Phil Laffer. An ambitious investment plan was also deployed. In order to increase production and storage capacity, cutting-edge agricultural technology, equipment and production techniques were incorporated.   In 2009, Graffigna was named "Winery of the Year" in the USA by The Critics Challenge and Graffigna Centenario became the most awarded Malbec of 2007-2008. Moreover, in 2010, Graffigna's Malbecs (Grand Reserve and Centenario) were awarded with 90 points by acclaimed critic Robert Parker. Today, Graffigna continues to consistently embrace innovation without relinquishing its rich history and tradition. Read less
