FREEMAN Corona Pinot Grigio 2016 is a single varietal wine inspired by the aromatic white wines of two regions in northern Italy – Friuli and the Alto Adige. It is a crisp approachable style made from lightly pressed whole-bunch grapes. Palate structure derives from small batch fermentation, some in stainless steel, and a portion in old oak barrels, the latter contributing an attractive savouriness. It is the companion to FREEMAN Corona Corvina Rondinella.
TASTING NOTES This refreshingly pure, zesty FREEMAN Corona Pinot Grigio 2016 is carefully crafted from early harvest grapes. A lightly chilled glass displays characteristic poached pear aromas, nuanced by notes of orange blossom. The lime-tinged palate displays intense refreshing and ample flavour, good palate weight that finishes with a minerally zing. Just pour and relax – and think of Italy.
