Santa Margherita Pg 2005
Santa Margherita was the first company to vinify the pinkish Pinot Grigio grapes as white wine. The must is not left on the skins to avoid its acquiring their rust-red color. After soft-pressing the must is left to ferment 15-20 days at 18°-20°C. The wine is then stored at 15°-16°C. in special stainless-steel tanks until bottling. Tasting notes This dry white wine is pale straw-yellow in color. The clean, intense aroma and dry flavour with pleasant golden apple aftertaste make Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio a wine of great character and versatility. Culinary suggestions Excellent as an aperitif, ideal accompaniment to seafood salads and fish- and shellfish-based pasta and rice courses. Perfect with white meats and boiled or grilled fish and with soufflés. Serving temperature 10°-12° C. (50°-54° F) Type: still white wine Varietal: Pinot Grigio Appellation: Valdadige D.O.C. Alcohol Content: 12% by vol. Bottle Size: 75 cl; 37.5 cl Cellaring: 2/3 years
Crisp nose, acidic attack. Some floral notes - peaches and nectarines. Nice spicy finish. Not bad - was a bit hungover, so dont quote me on this.
Probably should go without saying it's not nearly as pleasant as the '03 - probably still a bit young. But nice and buttery overall, a little sweet on the aftertaste. Always a nice.
