The Italian version of Pinot Gris, this wine has seen no time in wood so it is bright, citrusy and refreshing. It’s low in acidity and only 11% alcohol so is easy drinking and refreshing. It’s the kind of wine you’d drink after working in the fields.
Our Pinot Grigio is a light straw in colour. Its aroma is of white and yellow flowers and lemon zest. On the palate, white peaches and candy apple are balanced by lemon citrus and brilliant acidity.
Pair this zippy, mouth-watering wine with kettle chips and sunshine.
The fruit is from Lake on the Mountain, 100 metres above the Bay of Quinte, where there is a very unique microclimate. It’s hotter up there and the berries are smaller for a more concentrated skin-to-must ratio, making for a luscious wine. This wine was also done as a wild fermentation, which makes it more complex. By being left to sit on its’ “lees” the wine takes on a peach colour and taste making for a delicious classic dinner wine.
