Balance Limited Edition Pinot Grigio (case of 6)
This wine tempts with enticing aromas of green apple which leads to a feast of fresh, lingering flavours of lemon, pear and tropical notes. The wine finesses with a crisp acidity.
The vineyards lies in deep red soils ensuring excellent water-retention and adding structure and fullness to the wines.
Harvesting occurred at optimal ripeness when the grapes were between 20.5 – 21.5° Balling. Picking was done in the early morning hours to ensure the grapes arrived cool at the cellar. Sulphur was added prior to transport to protect the grapes from oxidation. Fermentation lasted 14 days at 12 – 13°C. After fermentation, the wine was racked and left on its fine lees prior to bottling.
The 2017 harvest was a challenge for both viticulturists and winemakers as it was one of the driest growing seasons. The smaller crop did however result in the formation of smaller berries with a higher concentration of flavours. The overall dry but cool season showed good structure with a fresh, crisp finish in the wines.
A perfect partner to light seafood dishes and creamy chicken and capers pasta.
