Erste Neue Pinot Grigio Alto Adige 2021
GRAPE VARIETY: Pinot Grigio
CLIMATE: Climate of the Mediterranean Alps
SOIL: Lime containing glacier deposit soil
VINIFICATION: Fermentation and storage in stainless steel tanks; long contact time with the fine yeast to develop a multi-layered body
ANALYSIS: alcohol: 13.5 % vol., total acidity: 6 g/l, residual sugar: 2.5 g/l
DEGUSTATION: The Pinot Grigio is graced with lovely purity in its clean, focused fruit. There is a wonderful warmth that radiates through the wine even if this remains a fresh, mineral-driven style of Pinot Grigio.
DISH IDEAS: An excellent wine for oysters and other fish dishes.
James Suckling – “Plenty of crisp apple and green-bean character here, but also quite a bit more substance and structure than is normal for a regular Alto Adige pinot grigio. Surprisingly long and complex finish. From organically grown grapes with Fair’n Green certification. Drink now. Screw cap.” (91 Pts)
