Montevina Pinot Grigio

Montevina Pinot Grigio 750ml    
Sku: 1042860*

Pinot Grigio (also known as Pinot Gris in France, California and Oregon) is the most popular dry white wine in northern Italy. Relatively few acres are planted in California, and Montevina is one of a small number of wineries to produce it. The grapes for Montevina`s 2002 Pinot Grigio were grown primarily in the Lodi region, a large, premium wine district in northern San Joaquin County, which benefits from cooling breezes funneled through the Carquinez Straits from San Francisco Bay.

Tasting notes
Montevina 2009 Pinot Grigio is the ultimate crowd pleaser. A lovely fresh color hints to the subtle delicacy and clean bright refreshment of the wine. Aromas of white nectarine and peach blossom dance out of the glass. Each sip delivers flavors rich with Bartlett pear, stone fruit flavors with a hint of nutmeg spice. Pair this delightful Pinot Grigio with anything from simple Ceprese salad, to cracked crab, to spicy Thai cuisine.

Wine maker notes
Pinot Grigio’s grey color creates unique winemaking challenges. The fruit is gently destemmed, then sent straight away to the press. Rather than inflating the bladders within the press and putting the squeeze on the grapes, we simply roll the press, letting the weight of the fruit crush the grapes themselves, releasing delicate ester-filled juice. Even the lightest press would add too much color from the skins to the juice. The fermentation is carried out in stainless steel at very low temperatures. The finished wine is held cold until bottling, and malolactic fermentation is prevented to preserve fresh acidity.
