2009 Pinot Grigio Friuli
Pale golden hue, with heady aromas of fresh citrus fruit, crushed flowers and some notes of pear. On the palate, refreshing and vibrant, with ripe green fruit flavours, a touch of minerality and good acidity. Pair with seafood salads, fish, shellfish and white meats.
Situated in the north east of Italy, Friuli has established itself as perhaps the premium area for white wine production in Italy. It was here in the 1920s that the Anselmi family first established themselves as winemakers, taking control of a small estate close to the coastline, where the vineyard benefits from warm sun during the day and cool nights. Giuseppe Anselmi and his brother Lugi tend to the 150yr old vines, and use traditional techniques to create a range of aromatic, expressive white wines.
