Tasting Notes

A wonderful pale straw colour the nose has hints of lime zest, waxed lemon and baked apple. The palate is everything you would expect, light, clean, refreshing and well balanced. On the finish its dry and very easy drinking.

Food Matches

Enjoy with a sourdough pizza with roasted vegetables.

Vinification

Unlike many Pinot Grigio's at this level which have upto 15% of inferior grapes such as Garganega or Trebbiano added, the Pure Pinot Grigio is made from 100% Pinot Grigio grapes, all picked from the fertile plains below Verona in the NE of Italy. Cool fermented in steel temperature controlled tanks and using indigineous yeats, the wine is clarified post-ferment and held in tanks to preserve the natural freshness and vivacity of the wine.
