"A ripe Grigio, benefiting from the heat of the 2016 vintage. Peach, banana, honey and spice burst on the palate, turning dry and citrusy on the finale. Chill and serve this summer on the patio or with fresh water fish. SCORE 87 (ES) "
Vintage & Viticulture
2016 will go down as one of the hottest, driest of seasons. Canopy management was very important to make sure fruit did not get sunburned and aromatic wines maintained fresh aromas and acidity. Another important factor this year was the ability to irrigate at crucial development stages of the vine which Reif Estate is capable of. Look for great reds and well balanced fruity whites.
This wine was made in a more classic Pinot Grigio style with no skin contact and little lees contact. Fermentation was completed in 10 days and the wine was removed off the lees quickly to maintain a light crisp mouthfeel. This vintage is a step away from Reif Estate’s previous style, but has the same great balance and makes a refreshing summer wine.
Our Pinot Grigio off dry with fruit flavours of pear and apple with hints of lemon and mineral. The wine is light bodied with a soft palate and long finish.
Ideal for light appetizers, fish and seafood.
