Freeman Hilltops Bianco Pinot Grigio 2021
FREEMAN BIANCO PINOT GRIGIO 2021
An easy-drinking Italian inspired white wine brimming with personality, flavour and texture. The unmistakable yellow capsule earmarks this wine for relaxed dining and everyday enjoyment, not philosophical discussion.
There is no other way to describe 2021 – it was a boomer! A dry cool spring was bolstered by rain after flowering that delivered balance and good yields. The perfect dry autumn ripened the Pinot Grigio grapes to near perfection, fully ripe and flavour-packed, picked in February for this zingy refreshing wine.
FREEMAN BIANCO PINOT GRIGIO 2021 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.
This pure, zesty FREEMAN BIANCO PINOT GRIGIO 2021 is carefully crafted from early harvest grapes. A lightly chilled glass displays characteristic poached pear aromas, nuanced by notes of elderflower blossom. The lime-tinged palate displays intense refreshing and ample flavour, good palate weight that finishes long, with a minerally zing. Just pour and relax – and think of Italy.
