Light straw in colour with citrus zest, floral honeysuckle, and hints on flinty minerality on the nose. Elegant mouthfeel with flavours of passion fruit, ripe melon, and stone fruits. This refreshing wine with a well-structured mid-palate showcases the great potential of Pinot Grigio from South Africa. A delicious drinking wine for aperitivo, antipasto and seafood.
Wine of Origin Stellenbosch
The grapes went into cold storage overnight before being de-stemmed and crushed straight into the press. The free run and first press juice was kept separate from the heavy pressed juice. After 2 days of settling at between 11-14◦C, the juice was racked of its lees and inoculated with a carefully selected cultivated yeast. Fermentation took place at 18◦C for 2 weeks. The wine was, thereafter, lightly fined and filtered before being bottled.
