2019 Casa Freschi Ragazzi Pinot Grigio
The fruit was collected in 8kg crates, whole bunch pressed within an hour of picking, and the juice transferred directly by gravity to Casa's cool subterranean cellar where wild yeast fermentation took place in used French barriques.
The wine was fermented to dryness, malolactic fermentation inhibited, then lees aged for 9 months and allowed to clarify and stabilise naturally without fining before being racked, blended, and hand-bottled. This is a multi-layered Pinot Grigio with complex and concentrated flavour led by pear, apple and lime. The pure, vibrant fruit flavours are supported by light, fine phenolics, mouth-watering acidity and mineral backbone.
