DESCRIPTION

This Sivi Pinot (Pinot Gris) was aged in French barrels for a period of one year and then left to rest in bottle for 4 months before release. For Pinot Grigio from this region it is unusually complex and mineral with aromas of custard, dried stone fruits and brioche and incredible density and length. 15 year old vines. 4500 bottles produced. This has a near purple hue!
