As the fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks at moderate to low temperatures, it allows this Pinot Grigio that fresh aromatic character to really shine through. With hints of nashi pears and lifted floral aromatics, the palate of the Pinot Grigio is rather rich and textural but all the while remains minerally with a very clean, acidity and a long finish. So when you’re serving up a lovely seafood meal or seafood pasta, make the 2017 Sirenya Pinot Grigio number one of your wine list.
Brilliant clarity and bright hues, with restrained floral aromatics of subtle pear and gentle spice. A true Pinot Grigio style.
The Sirenya Pinot Grigio is sourced from the elevated Mygunya Vineyard in the Adelaide Hills on the border of McLaren Vale. This gives us the best of both worlds with the cooler conditions of elevated Adelaide Hills ideal for delicate aromatic varieties such as Pinot Grigio but with less rainfall and therefore less disease pressure than experienced in the heart of the Adelaide Hills.
With the view to making a fresh, crisp and lively style of Pinot Grigio the fruit is picked in the earlier stage of ripeness before overt tropical fruit characters are expressed, giving more mineral and citric fruit expressions. Fermentation is conducted in a stainless steel tank at low temperature to maintain the fresh aromatics and delicate structure of the wine.
Bright, fresh and aromatic with nashi pear lifted floral aromatics, the palate is quite rich and textural, yet remains minerally and with clean acidity and a long finish. The Sirenya is ideally suited to fresh seafood and seafood pasta dishes.
Selected and hand-picked from the ‘Mygunya Vineyard’, Adelaide Hills. Fruit flavour and a high natural acidity was preserved by a steady, cool ferment. Stainless steel fermentation. Vinified at Chapel Hill (McLaren Vale) by Mike Farmilo (contract winemaker, Vinaceous Wines).
