Oaked Pinot Grigio, Fidora, Veneto, Italy 2019
Regular price £17.60
Produced using a selection of the best grapes of the vintage. They are hand-harvested before a fermentation process utilising only indigenous yeasts. The wine is then left ageing on its lees for 10 months in oak barrels, giving the wine increased weight, richness and texture. The nose is dominated by notes of white peach, pears and hints of vanilla. The palate is round and creamy yet still maintaining the dry, mineral quality you would expect from top quality Pinot Grigio.White Organic Pinot Grigio 13%
The Fidora family have always been trailblazers and their vineyard is recognised as the oldest organic estate in the Veneto region. In 1974, Guido Fidora took the decision to convert his family vineyard from conventional to organic viticulture. Behind his decision was a desire to strive towards two key principles – the avoidance of chemicals and the promotion of biodiversity. Nowadays, the philosophy of the estate, now controlled by Emilio Fidora, continues to revolve around the importance of biodiversity, and they are extremely proud that their vineyards are home to a burgeoning population of hares, foxes, pheasants and countless species of bird.
