Peter Zemmer Pinot Grigio DOC
This Pinot Grigio is a selection of the best vineyards amongst the valley floor and steep slopes near the vineyard estate. It flourishes under outstanding climatic conditions on a stony, sandy and extremely chalky soil. The low yield per hectare and particular terroir are responsible for the outstanding quality of the wine.
After the grapes arrive at the cellar, they are gently pressed and clarified through the natural settling of sediments. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out with pure strains of yeast at a controlled temperature of 18°C in stainless steel tanks. This is followed by several months of ripening on the yeast.
Radiant straw-yellow colour with a light green tint. The elegant bouquet exhibits typical aromas of ripe pear, green apples, sweet melon and subtle spices. Fruity and mineral flavours dominate the full-bodied palate. The rich aromas and excellent acidity make this wine hard and rich.
