Renegade, Araceli Pinot Grigio Ramato, Pfalz, Germany 2019
(at Renegade Winery, 20 Jul 2020)
Drinking Window: 2020 - 2022
Sourced from Pfalz, this Pinot Grigio is light garnet in colour as it's been fermented on the skins for two weeks then aged in new French oak for a short period of time. It is bottled without filtration, hence the slight haziness. Candied strawberry and bruised apple on the nose, dusted by sweet spices. It has tomato leaves, hawthorn, ripe strawberry flavours on the palate, with a touch of tannin to add texture. The bruised apple and sweet berry notes follow to the finish. 'Ramato' in the wine name means copper in Italian, and Araceli, who is featured on the label, is a Data Scientist originally from Madrid.
