Pinot Grigio/Pinot Gris
Region: Sicily, Italy
Pack Size: 6 Bottle Pack
Summary: Love Not War brings together a collective of like-minded winemakers from around the world united by their belief in organic farming. Enabling them to showcase classic wine styles delivered from the most sought-after wine regions. Hand-crafted thoughtfully using premium organically farmed fruit and minimal winemaking intervention resulting in vibrant, full flavoured, vegan friendly wines.
Winemaking: All hand-picked and hand-sorted before whole bunch pressing to 100% stainless steel for fermentation. After an uneventful ferment to dryness the wine spent a short period on lees to build mouth-feel and flavour complexity before being bottled.
Vineyards: Sourced from organically grown vineyards in the famed volcanic region of Sicily. The combination of altitude, volcanic soils and mature vines create intensely flavoured but elegant wines.
Vintage 2020: Although yields were down a little on previous years, the vignerons of Sicily can all agree on the quality which was excelllent. Fruit was healthy and with fine aromatics and acidity shining through. The weather throughout summer was hot but not too hot and was aided by cool evenings ensuring an even ripeness.
Tasting Note: Varietal Pinot Grigio made even more pure by organically farmed fruit. On the nose it shows fresh green pear, dried herb, and citrus. Spending a short time on lees has softened the wine and delivered a more layered, textural mouthfeel whilst maintaining the acidity we expect of Pinot Grigio. Best consumed in its youth, this wine will partner well with fresh seafood dishes like spaghetti alla vongole.
