Sospiro: Pinot Grigio Blush
Description: Salmon pink, with an aromatic nose of freshly crushed cranberries. A delicious balance of zingy citrus and fruity red berry flavours lead this light, dry and crisp wine. Very easy to drink, and perfect for any summer occasion.
Vinification: Pinot Grigio grapes are crushed in parcels and left to cold macerate, giving the wine its distinctive salmon blush. Each parcel is macerated for a different length of time and blended after fermentation, ensuring a standard colour. Fermentation occurs in temperature controlled steel tanks, and no oak is used throughout the process.
Vineyard:Vineyard: Sospiro’s Pinot Grigio vineyards are located north of Verona, at an elevation of 250 to 300 metres that ensures good sunlight exposure with a cool climate, retaining acidity and delicate fruit flavours. Harvests take place at the end of August.
Food Match: Perfect drinking during the spring and summer months, this rose is a great match for salads, fish and light pasta dishes. Try it with grilled or barbecued chicken with a cous-cous salad, or enjoy with your favourite pizza.
