LA ZONA Pinot Grigio 2017

LA ZONA Pinot Grigio 2017

Chrismont has long realized the potential of Pinot Grigio as a variety to excite the palates of Australian wine drinkers, and boasts some of the most established vines in the King Valley. What makes our Pinot Grigio style so distinctive is the decision of when to harvest, which comes when we see the first development of green melon flavours in the fruit and its acidity levels still around 7.5 to 8.0g/L. This usually gives a potential alcohol of 11.0 with the crispness and balance we like, and that you will find in the finished wine.

Winemaker Notes
“What makes our Pinot Grigio style so distinctive is the decision of when to harvest, which comes when we see the first development of green apple flavours in the fruit. The fruit for this release was harvested early in the season to achieve light floral fruit flavours with good natural acidity. The juice is then handled oxidatively to naturally remove any colour and unwanted tannins prior to settling and racking, then fermented cool in stainless steel to preserve fruit flavours before being fined, filtered, and bottled.” Warren Proft, winemaker
Food Pairing Notes
Delightful aperitif and perfect food wine, recommended with seafood, Asian flavours and traditional antipasti.
