Kettmeir Pinot Grigio Alto Adige DOC
Description The wine’s bright straw yellow colour is an introduction to heady scents of white-fleshed fruit, especially pear and ripe apple, with floral and citrus notes. Dynamic and energetic on the palate, an aromatic symphony with freshness as the conductor and a savoury tang as accompaniment. Notes of tropical fruit provide a final flourish.
Harvest & Vinification The fully ripe grapes are harvested by hand and undergo gentle softpressing to prevent the must taking on this variety’s copper-toned pigments. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 17-18°C. After initial racking the wine rests on its lees to develop body and great balance.
Food Matching An excellent aperitif but also a very versatile companion to many different foods: seafood starters, fish dishes, flavoursome soups and white meats. A must-try with exotic, hot and spicy cuisine.
Grape Variety 100% Pinot Grigio.
