Product Description

Region: Limarí Valley Weight: Medium bodied Grape Varieties: 100% Pinot Grigio Fermentation & Ageing: 100% stainless steel tanks Alcohol: 12.5% Sometimes known as Pinot Gris, Pinot Grigio's origins are in Europe. It produces rich, ripe wines in the Alsace region of France and is grown widely throughout Italy. Good Pinot Grigio should be crisp and fresh with clean lemon and mineral notes. Chile's Limarí Valley is an ideal place to grow this grape variety. Plenty of sunshine coupled with a cooling sea breeze ensures our Pinot Grigio is bursting with fresh citrus character. This medium bodied Pinot Grigio is full of vibrant pear flavours with hints of citrus fruit and tangerine. Suggested food matching Pinot Grigio is a remarkably versatile grape. It is great for drinking on its own because it is so crisp and fresh. Perfect to savour on its own or with salads, fish, smoked salmon or risotto. The citrus flavours work exceedingly well with shellfish and complement dishes with herbs and chilli flavours.

Varietal: Pinot Gris/Pinot Grigio

Region: Chile

Region Description:

Although the Spaniards first established vineyards here in the mid 16th century, most of today’s Chilean wine is made from French grape varieties, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay. Chile’s isolated position between the Pacific and the Andes means it is safe from pests and disease that plague European vineyards, and also assures mild temperatures and relatively dry air. Most of Chile’s vineyards are in the Central Valley, and a fair number of them are owned by renowned French, Spanish, and American winemakers. Wines are named for their grape varieties, but they carry a regional or district indication as well. Reasonably priced, and increasingly sophisticated, they make excellent values.
