Tasting notes

Our Pinot Grigio is planted in the highest point in the vineyard, at an altitude of approximately 520 metres above sea level, where it enjoys cool nights and shade from the afternoon sun – ideal for premium Grigio production. We aim to follow the leaner, drier Italian model of Pinot Grigio to make a wine that is delicate, lifted and versatile. The juice is barrel-fermented in old French barriques and goes through partial malo-lactic fermentation which has resulted in a complex flavour profile and soft, generous mouthfeel. Primary characters of pear, grapefruit, green apple and chamomile combine with refreshing acidity and great length on the palate.
