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 2019: The 2019 vintage in Sicily was 30% down on previous vintages. After a cold, wet Spring, the Summer was not too warm nor too dry producing grapes that were perfectly formed with ample acidity. While quantity was down, the quality was excellent.
Tasting Note: The 2019 Pinot Grigio is a textbook example of the variety displaying lemons, fresh green pear, cloves, and wet stone. Spending a short time on lees post fermentation has softened the wine and delivered a more layered, textural mouthfeel whilst maintaining the racy acidity we expect of the region. Best consumed in its youth, this wine will partner well with fresh seafood, goats cheese dishes and antipasto.
