Region: Goriska Brda
Type: Orange Wine
Grape: Pinot Gris
Grapes were hand-harvested from sandstone and slate soils on the organically farmed vineyards of Belo, Cujevca, and Jez. 100% Pinot Gris macerated with 24 hours on the skins, and aged 12 months in French oak followed by additional four months in bottle. The wine is made with no use of chemical compounds, native yeasts only, no added sulfur and no filtration.
The creamy texture and strawberry color of the Sivi Pinot is on the opposite side of the spectrum from most Italian Pinot Grigios. This is fresh and complex, with mineral-tinged floral aromas, and flavors of custard, peach, apricot and brioche.
