Summary

Sourced from a higher altitude appellation further cooled by evening breezes from nearby Lake Gard, La Vendetta Pinot Grigio is an elegant and refreshing expression of the variety.

A restrained nose of citrus, riverstone and stone fruit with floral hints courtesy of the Garganega. The palate is very pure and lightly textured with crisp flavours of apple, green pear and spice. The mineral acidity is fresh and bright before a clean, dry finish. A lighter style of Pinot Grigio best suited as an aperitif or with delicate seafood dishes.

Winemaking

Hand harvested in the early morning to retain natural acidity. Primarily whole bunched pressed, aiming to limit skin contact and preserve elegance. Fermented in stainless steel with temperature control before maturation on lees for six months to build texture and complexity. A portion of Garganega (typically used in Soave) is blended to add delicate floral aromatics.

2010 Vintage

In the north east of Italy, white wines will be star of the 2010 vintage. After a cold winter and spring, a warm start to summer was stalled by a cool and rather wet August. This, whilst challenging for reds, allowed the white grapes to ripen gradually and develop beautiful high note aromatics. Cool Autumn nights led to the retention of natural mineral acidity. Whilst not blockbusters, the 2010 whites will be long remembered for their aromatics, finesse and elegance.

Tasting Note

Pale and delicate of colour with a fresh and vibrant nose showcasing lifted aromas of lemon, white peach and cut pear overlaid with delicate floral highlights. The palate is wonderfully pure and crisp with flavours of apple, citrus and white flower carried by a shimmering mineral backbone. The finish is long, dry and beautifully crisp – the perfect partner for delicate seafood.
