Peter Zemmer, Pinot Grigio 2015, Süditrol, Alto Adige, Italy
Tasting Note: An enjoyable wine that proves that all Italian pinot grigios aren’t neutral, unremarkable and devoid of character.
This pinot grigio allows the purity of the grape to show with elegant finesse.
Pale lemon in color this wine is from the Alto Adige region of Northwestern Italy, an area of Italy where German and Italian are both spoken near the Austrian border.
On the nose this aromatic white has a nose of bosc pear, green apple, melon and lemon zest.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied pinot grigio echoes the nose with delicate flavors that ride under a refreshing layer of tartness that show mid-to-back palate through to a finish that displays floral-infused notes of minerality and medium acidity.
Bottle Note: The distinctive elegance of this wine captivates the senses with its perfect harmony. The wine reflects not only its characteristic origin but also the natural distinctiveness of its unique terrain.
