Venica & Venica Pinot Grigio Jesera

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This delicate grigio comes from the PG homeland of Italy, and shows slender aromas of lemons, pears, limes, apples and stone fruits on the nose. The palate is lighter-bodied and steely, with some sweet peach and pear flavours, a squeeze of lemon juice, some talciness to the mouthfeel, and a refreshing apple-like finish. This would be great with gnocchi in a four cheese sauce.

Winemaker's Notes

Jesera is “little lake” in Slovenian and it’s the name of the major vineyard from where grapes are picked. This site is at the bottom of a cool valley; the water that flows from the hills and guarantees the vines are perfectly supported.

Appearance: Pinot Grigio grapes, dark grape variety (violet), are lightly macerated and pressed under CO2 that prevent oxidation and maintain the pink / orange colour of the juice. This is the reason you see the copper refection in wine.

Nose: The natural copper-colored extracted with maceration is the signature of this wine and its richness with reminiscent of Poire William, banana, and Acacia flowers wrapped in a slight scent of fresh apricot.

Palate: Intriguing taste with pleasant flavours of pear syrup and quince peels. Good acid / alcohol balance with a long fruity finish.

Alcohol: 13.5%

Grape Variety: 100% Pinot Grigio.
