Terre di Ger - Pinot Grigio 2016
I really enjoyed this white one from Friuli.
Terre di Ger - Pinot Grigio (86 tsomw points)
In the glass a bright yellow color.
On the nose aromas peach, pears and hints of perfume and flowers.
On the palate dry, nice acidity and minerality spiced melon along with apple, persistent and salty finish.
Characteristics of the Vintage The spring of 2016 was a particularly rainy one. This was very important for the water reserve during blossom. Manual pruning and selection of the sprouts was essential to preserve the vineyard’s health and facilitate movement of air between the rows and the plants. The dry and sunny summer was only briefly interrupted by rain. At harvest period the grapes were perfectly ripened and in the best conditions in years.
