Alpha Zeta 'P' Pinot Grigio 2017 (1x75cl)

Alpha Zeta was created in 1999 by UK wine importer, David Gleave MW, and New Zealand winemaker, Matt Thomson with this belief in mind. They realised that the key is to marry local grape growers with impeccable winemaking. All Alpha Zeta wines are made from indigenous grape varieties grown in the hills north-east of Verona.  The flavours of the grape shine through in the glass offering great value, quality and balance. Matt works with local Veronese grape growers in hillside vineyards to select parcels of fruit, rather than buying in bulk wine. They have worked together to reduce yields and the grapes are now picked later. In this way, they have been able to improve grape quality and obtain riper flavours.

Alpha Zeta's own tasting notes for this wine are excellent, so please click the blue link below to see all this wine's details.

Corte Giara Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie 2017 (1x75cl)

Corte Giara is the negociant label of Allegrini. The wines are made by Allegrini from fruit brought in from outside their own vineyards. They have a similar stamp of quality that sets them apart from most of the Veronese wines produced at this level.

The vineyards are situated in the eastern, morainic hills of Lake Garda with an elevation of 200-250 metres above sea level. The vines are planted with a south/south-west exposure on stony, well drained soils. The vines are trained by the Guyot system, with a plant density of 3,000 vines per hectare. The average age of the vines is 26 years.

The grapes were whole bunch pressed and fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 14-15°C for 8-10 days. Partial malolactic fermentation was allowed to take place in September. The wine remained in tank until bottling.

Bright straw yellow in the glass with light and delicate aromas showing lovely Pinot Grigio character. Elegant floral notes are complemented by richer hints of Golden Delicious apples. This wine with its dry, racy palate and good depth and definition is a sure-fire winner.

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.

The 2016 season saw many similarities to 2015, with a cool winter and abundant rainfall. The beginning of the vegetative cycle saw alternate dry and rainy periods, which allowed the plants to develop well. The hot and dry summer that followed led to an abundant harvest of high quality grapes.

Ponte Del Diavolo Pinot Grigio Grave Del Friuli 2016 (1x 75cl)

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 2016 season saw many similarities to 2015, with a cooler winter and abundant rainfall. The beginning of the vegetative cycle saw alternate dry and rainy periods, which allowed the plants to develop perfectly. The hot and dry summer that followed led to an abundant harvest of high quality grapes.

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 Stelvin to maximise freshness and eliminate cork taint.

Light, bright lemon in colour with 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.

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.

£19.90

Willowood Pinot Grigio 2014 (1x 75cl)
