100% Pinot Gris. Extraordinary variety that ripens early and produces a fine and high quality wine. It is a red grape variety that is vinified as a white or rose variety, widely seen in Italy. We were the first to plant Pinot Gris in Argentina.

The discrete and delicate colour is obtained by Pinot Gris skin maceration like the lauded Roses of Provence. The nose offers an inviting blend of white and citrus fruit, typical of the Pinot Gris grape variety, and subtle berry fruit aromas provided by skin An early harvest enabled the Pinot Gris grapes to retain their natural
acidity and to make a wine with a fresh entry on the palate. A good acidity supported by volume and fat obtained by lees ageing and a long crisp finish.
After a particularly cool summer, we starting picking the Pinot Gris at the end of February, about two weeks later than usual. March and April were cold and damp. Despite the rain, no botrytis appeared, thanks to rigorous work in the vineyards. This vintage is marked by a lower level of alcohol than the previous vintage. 2016 also offers elegant aromatic wines with exceptional acidity.
