From Pinot Grigio grapes grown in the Veneto, northern Italy. Conviviale Pinot Grigio is the result of a selection of the best quality grapes from mature vineyards, which were hand harvested in late August / early September. The grapes were crushed and gently pressed and the juice allowed to settle and clarify before cool fermentation at 16 to 18C in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine was aged for a period of 3 to 6 months on fine lees in stainless steel tanks before bottling.
Ripe and textural Pinot Grigio. Apple aromas with hints of honey and peach. On the palate the wine is textural with layers of orchard fruit, spice and fresh citrus acidity.
Serve as an aperitif or with seafood and fish dishes, salads and cold meats. It also has enough richness to accompany roast poultry and poached salmon.
