Description

First release of this Pinot Gris made in an ancient style originating in Friuli.  Fruit is sourced from the Mount Franklin vineyard, planted to various Italian varieties due to its climatic similarities with Italy’s north east.  The Pinot Gris is cropped low which allows this style to be made, and what differentiates Ramato from typical skin contact wines is time – following a month on skins, the wine sat for a full year on solids after pressing, followed by another year ageing in hogsheads.

Rose-gold in the glass, rosé-esque.  A delicate set of aromatics led by florals, both fresh and dried.  Elegant and complex in the mouth, tight and understated, with flavours of melons, orchard fruit skins, savoury pineapple, manadarin and baking spice.   Closes with fabulous fine red wine tannin derived length.  It’s a paradigm bender, but delicious and everything’s in place, and will reward creative food pairings for sure.
