Botter Pinot Grigio 2017 (1x75cl)

Botter has been producing quality wines since 1928. Their portfolio has a wide range of products, many of which are made with grapes from native vines in order to underline their multi-territorial approach that spans the whole of Italy, from the North to the South. From the wines of Veneto to those of Sicily and Apulia, their selection traces out a map of Italian oenological culture and taste, revealing their passion for wine.

The grapes are soft-pressed and the must then ferments for between 15 to 20 days at a controlled temperature of 15/17°C, in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then stored at 18/20°C in stainless steel tanks until the bottling time.

Botter Pinot Grigio has a straw yellow colour. Its bouquet is lively and fresh with apple notes. On the palate it is clean and fresh with a typical minerality that is often associated with this grape variety. It is ideal as an aperitif and with any fish courses.

Livio Felluga Pinot Grigio 2014 (1x 75cl)

Livio Felluga emigrated from Istria and established his property in Brazzano in the 1950s. Convinced of the winemaking potential inherent in Collio and the Colli Orientali of Friuli, he bucked the trend of the times and started buying vineyards. Their landmark Terre Alte was first produced in 1981 and they have continued to make innovative and consistently high quality wines since. Winemaker Andrea Felluga has embraced stelvin in a characteristically forward looking way. After experimenting with the closure for five years, he felt confident in using the stelvin closure to retain freshness and perfume in his wines.

The quality of the Felluga range is in large part due to the fact that the fruit is grown on their 200 hectare property, which includes some of the finest vineyards in Friuli. The estate's vineyards straddle provincial borders, being located in both Colli Orientali and Collio, but most are situated in Rosazzo in the heart of the Colli Orientali DOC zone. The vines are Guyot-trained, with an ecologically sustainable approach to viticulture. The soil is marl and flysch.

2014 was one of the trickiest vintages seen since 1984. It was a mild and wet winter, so pests and pathogens flourished. This led to lots of disease pressure in the vineyards, especially as it was a wet summer. In general, the whites have a higher acidity than seen in recent years so need a bit more time on their lees to flatten out.

The grapes were de-stemmed without crushing and then macerated briefly on the skins before a soft pressing. Temperature-controlled fermentation took place between 17-19°C in stainless steel tanks, where it matured on the lees for six months. It was then aged in bottle for two months before release.

Straw yellow with light golden hues. Intense yet elegant aromas of melon and candied fruit are complemented by white fruit and floral notes, with a delicate mixture of brioche, honey and flint. Fresh and smooth on the palate, this persistent Pinot Grigio has great balance and finished with a refreshing minerality.

Ponte Del Diavolo Pinot Grigio Grave Del Friuli 2017 (1x 75cl)

The wines of Ponte Del Diavolo are made on the well-drained soils of Grave del Friuli and are fuller than those from Verona. The Ponte del Diavolo wines take their name from the spectacular medieval bridge in nearby Cividale. The story goes that the devil struck a bargain with the townspeople, promising to make them a bridge in return for the soul of the first living thing to cross it. The cunning citizens sent a dog or cat across, depending on the variation of the story, thereby saving themselves and gaining a wonderful bridge.

The Pinot Grigio grapes for this wine are grown in vineyards in Grave del Friuli in the southern part of Friuli. The vines are grown on alluvial plains with stony soils.

The 2017 vintage began with a cold, rainy winter and was compounded by a late frost at the end of April. Flowering was late, beginning towards the end of May on the higher slopes, a little earlier in the lower vineyards. Sunny weather followed and the summer weather was good. Overall, 2017 was a relatively challenging vintage because of the difficult start and quantities were down on the previous year. Despite this, the grapes were harvested in good condition and quality levels were high.

After crushing, the must was chilled to 11-12°C and pressed gently to ensure no herbaceous aromas were extracted. Temperature-controlled fermentation using selected yeasts took place in stainless steel tanks between 12-14°C. Cold fermentation meant that the process could be drawn out to 30 days to increase perfume and complexity. The wine remained at 6°C in tank on the fine lees until bottling. This is a costly and time consuming process but plays a key role in contributing to the finesse and delicate aromatics of the finished wine. No carbon fining was used and the Pinot Grigio was sealed under screwcap to maximise freshness and eliminate cork taint.

Light, bright lemon in colour, this wine showcases a lively, freshly cut pear and baked bread character on the nose. Aromatic, with good structure and body, it has lovely elegance on the palate with ripe pears, a touch of sherbet and a nutty note offset by the characteristic freshness of wines from Friuli.

Sartori Pinot Grigio Arcole 2017 (1x75cl)

To Juliet’s question “What’s in a name?” the Sartori family would answer “Everything!” For over a century, Sartori, a leading name in fine wines from northeast Italy’s Veneto region, has stood for traditional values elevated by innovation, a dedication to quality and — above all — a boundless passion for quality winemaking. A constant theme over the last century has been the Sartori family’s bond with their land: it is a heritage that has evolved and is reflected in their new interpretations of the great classical Veronese wines, as well as in their innovative expressions of traditional varietals.

The Sartori Pinot Grigio Arcole has aromas of white pears and flowery notes. The palate is soft and fresh with good texture. Very good as an aperitif, but nice also with pasta dishes with light sauces and fish.

Spee'wah Estate (Crooked Mick) Pinot Grigio 2015 (1x 75cl)

The Murray Darling is the second largest wine region in Australia and the name of two rivers (the Murray and the Darling) which converge in the Murray Darling Basin in New South Wales. Until the 1880's, the region was a dessert, then irrigation opened up the area to agriculture with vines being particularly suited to the climate. Today there are over 30 boutique wineries, such as Deakin Estate, Trentham, Zilzie and Chalmers producing excellent wines as well as top everyday wines. 

Spee'Wah is actually shipped to the UK in temperature controlled sealed tanks, then bottled in lighter glass bottles. This not only ensures its quality, but is environmentally friendly and drastically reduces its price on the shelf.

Apples and pears predominate this lovely fresh, dry white wine. The palate stays light, though becomes a little more opulent as the wine opens up with peaches and hints of tropical fruits leading to a clean, dry finish.

Light and crisp with flavours of apples, pears, peaches and tropical fruit.

Tommasi Pinot Grigio Vigneto le Rosse 2017 (1x75cl)

Always keeping a careful eye on tradition while ever ready to accept innovation, the Tommasi family has planted a vineyard composed entirely of Pinot Grigio grapes, in the heart of its newest fields in the Valpolicella Classica region. Called Le Rosse, its vines have been subjected to close planting and intense pruning, resulting in an extremely low yield of extraordinary richness.

The Le Rosse Pinot Grigio spends 4 months in stainless steel tanks.

This wine has a moon yellow colour. There is a clean and spicy perfume, with typical hints of tropical fruit. It has a medium-bodied taste which is  clean, round and soft with a crisp finish. This wine goes well with light appetizers, soups and fish.

Vinnaioli Jermann Pinot Grigio Igt 2017 (1x 75cl)

The soil where the vines for this Pinot Grigio are planted is predominantly marlstone and sandstone. The aspect is southwest and northeast. Yields are kept low in order to increase concentration and are harvested at the optimum ripeness / acidity balance.

Only small volumes are ever made and this enables Jermann to control the quality of each individual parcel by tending it meticulously throughout the year. Through very careful vinification of the individual parcels Jermann is able to ensure that the maximum amount of elegance and transparency is given space to show itself in the finished wine.

An intense straw yellow colour with a faint tinge of old rose. Beautifully pure, elegant, floral Pinot Grigio. The bouquet is full and fruity. A touch of almonds and vanilla, a hint of fruit and spice on the palate, a smooth and dry full-bodied white which is particularly harmonious and accessible.
