The 2015 Sivi Pinot Grigio Época was aged for 24 months in 50% new French oak (the rest, three years old). It comes in at 13.7% alcohol. It handles its wood beautifully. It seems substantial, precise and focused, not quite as lively as a wholly unoaked version but still very fresh and perfectly balanced. It fills the mouth and ends with some tension. This is beautifully done. The winery says that this can hold for some 10+ years. It might well. It might even be entitled to an uptick in score if it develops and improves along the way. Either way, it's a fine bargain. While you can age this, it will drink very nicely this summer too.

green grapes

Varietal: Pinot Gris

The rise in popularity of Pinot Grigio (also known as Pinot Gris) wines over the past decade has led to this particular grape varietal being planted in many countries around the world in enormous quantities. These grapes range in color from grayish blue to lilac and amber, and with many shades in between. However, they are most prized for their wide range of flavors and aromas, and their relatively high level of 'transparency', or the ability to put across elements of their terroir in the bottle. The Pinot Grigio varietal also has a relatively high natural sugar content, which means that wineries have plenty of scope when it comes to processing their juices, resulting in semi-sweet Pinot Grigio wines, or very lean, crisp and dry examples depending on how much fermentation has been allowed.
