The vineiyard is in the Valpolicella Classico Region. The rows are planted extremely close together and receive intense pruning, resulting in low yields and excellent richness. All grapes are harvested at night, to retain maximum freshness and acidity.
This wine is bright, very crisp, and well rounded. Spicy nose and a rounded body.
Much nicer than the Two Oceans South African Pinot Grigio we had a few nights ago.
Keep a little on the chilly side .. as it warms it isn’t quite as full flavoured.
Tried something a little different. Crushed pistachios on top of the scallops and because I wanted a quicker sear, I used Avocado oil and butter instead of the usual olive oil. Rice instead of the usual couscous. Veggies were zucchini and small asparagus spears. Orange salad with cut dried figs (instead of dates) Yo – pomegranate molasses and a small splash of Sambuca.
