Evolved & complex. Walnut, dried apricot, cloves, sultanas...
The Sivi Pinot Prestige 2016 from Rodica Estate has a beautiful deep bronze colour, reminiscent of whiskey.
On the nose it opens with oxidative notes, walnut, dried apricot, candied orange, sultanas, cloves…
The mounthfeel is round where the tannins are present but well integrated and pleasant. A certain freshness is there to tingle the mouth too.
On the palate I find notes of bitter almond, sultanas, candied orange again. It’s almost reminiscent of a Christmas cake.
The finish is medium long.
How it's made
Wild fermented. Cold maceration and maturation sur lies.
White wine grape
A white wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera, Pinot gris, pinot grigio, or Grauburgunder is a white wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera. It is thought to be a pinot noir mutant clone with a grayish-blue fruit, hence the name, but the grapes can range in color from brownish pink to black and even white. The grapes grow in small pine cone-shaped clusters, which may have given it the name pinot. This grape’s wines range in color from a deep golden yellow to copper and even a light shade of pink, and it’s one of the most common grapes for skin-contact wine.Link to here... | Derived from 'Pinot gris' on Wikipedia
