Pinot Grigio South Tyrolean Pinot Grigio DOC
Ritterhof Pinot Grigio (1x 0,75l traditionally vinified in South Tyrol in Caldaro, on the Wine Road No. 1
This classic Pinot Gris has a luminous pale, straw-yellow colour and delights the nose with complex fruit notes, particularly juicy pear. Its flavour is well structured with a graceful fullness, elegance, a well-balanced fruit acidity and pleasant spiciness.
WINE GROWING AREA
The vineyards for our Pinot Gris are in the Upper Adige Valley at an altitude of 320 – 420 metres. The vines grow on gravelly clay soils and are grown with the guyot system.
HARVEST AND YIELD
Harvesting of the Pinot Gris grapes begins in mid to late September. From the handpicked grapes, we achieve a yield of 70 hectolitres of wine per hectare.
After a short maceration time, the freshly picked Pinot Gris grapes are gently pressed, clarified and fermented in a stainless steel tank at a controlled temperature of 20°C.
This Pinot Gris goes exceptionally well with fish, light starters and white meats.
