It shows pale lemon to gold colour. Quite gentle, delicate on the nose, lovely fruity, refreshing, very much as biting apple. Dry, medium to full bodied with slightly oily texture and moderate acidities. Quite intense on the palate and well balanced. Savoury, great with food. A classic Pinot Gris from our place with fruit of Gris and freshens of Grigio.
Salads, pasta, risotto, slightly spiced dishes including many Asian.
2018 was marked by huge downy mildew pressure in June, followed by a period of warm and dry weather in July and August. Rain in early September rushed winegrowers to pick early ripening varieties quickly while late-ripening varieties enjoyed a nice warm Indian summer. Wines of 2018 vintage in our winery are marked by low to moderate alcohol levels, vibrant acidities and clear, defined varietal characteristics. A classic Styrian vintage.
In stainless steel tanks, matured on the fine lees.
At its peak but can be kept for another three to four years. Drink from 2020-2023.
WINE IS CULTURE AND ALWAYS HAS VALUE AS A LINK TO SOCIETY.
