Product Description

De Bortoli Family Selection Pinot Grigio 2016  Appearance Pale straw. Bouquet White stonefruit and almonds, with a hint of lime pith. Palate Crunchy pear offers a mid-palate balance and a clean finish. Suggested Cuisine Yellow Fin Tuna Sashimi, goat milk chevre, avocado, ponzu, belle radish & pork crackling. Warmer temperatures and above average winter–spring rains made for an early budburst. A few loads of fruit beat the late January rains but things slowed up for a week until we dried out. Perfect dry conditions followed for the rest of vintage, with the added soil moisture keeping night time temperatures lower then usual. This allowed the fruit to retain fresh acid in whites and good colour/flavour in reds. 2016 will be remembered as one of the earliest and most compressed vintages on record with harvest over mid March. Winemaking Low yielding, young vineyards and a splash of Riesling to add some lift to the Grigio. Fermentation via inoculation with a select strain of yeast to enhance mouth-feel and fruit concentration. As in previous years each parcel was left on yeast lees for an extended time intensifying the natural fruit flavours and texture of the wine.
