2018 Ptujska Klet Pullus Pinot Grigio - Podravje, Slovenia
This 100% Pinot Grigio is macerated for 72 hours on its skins, giving this wine a pale shade of copper/orange. With tangy, citrus peel notes and subtle brininess, it definitely pushes the limits of Pinot Grigio though it still retains some of the tropical, stone fruit freshness of a typical Pinot Grigio. Floral notes on the nose lead to subtle pear and melon flavors on the palate, while the discreet oak and the subtle creaminess from extended lees contact as well as a hint of tannin round out this unique wine. Perfect for pasta carbonara, poultry or strong cheese.
