Villa Maria Private Bin Pinot Grigio Wine is new Zealand white wine. It is grown on free draining soils comprised of silt and sand. The vines were cropped low, allowing ripe flavours to fully develop in the fruit. It goes well with fresh seafood, chicken or white meat. A fantastic alternative to Sauvignon Blanc, its moderate alcohol and approachable style make it a great food wine.
It destemmed and crushed, gentle pressing was then employed to avoid excessive skin contact. The juice was cold settled then racked clear and inoculated for ferment. Cool fermentation techniques were employed to promote aromatics and delicacy. The individual ferments were tasted daily and stopped once the desired residual sugar level was achieved. Regular lees stirring for two months was undertaken in tank to enhance texture. The wine was then blended, gently fined, cold stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.
