In Alto Adige Pinot Grigio ranks as one of the most important varieties and altitude is king. Erste + Neue’s Pinot Grigio comes from some of their highest sites ranging in altitudes up to 800 metres that have an array of different soil types. Picked in late September to retain acidity and freshness, post fermentation the pressed juice spends about 6 months in 110-hectolitre neutral oak and is left on gross less to provide additional texture and palate weight.
Bright pale straw to straw colour with a watery hue. Delightful pear and red apple scents fill the nostrils with hints of dried honey, faint musk and wet stone also evident. Delicious pear, red apple and lime flavours are delivered with fantastic intensity and textural volume across the palate. Traces of musk and stony mineral elements lie underneath. Finishes dry and supple with brisk acidity and a long wet stone laced aftertaste.
Drink over the next 1-2 years.
Alc. 13.5%
