The Annelise Pinot Grigio Winemaking
The Annelise Pinot Grigio is part of the Alfredo range, which we make as a tribute to the founders of Nugan Estate, Alfredo and Annelise Nugan. The pair made the decision to emigrate from Spain in 1940, during the Spanish Civil War. They had a very clear vision of what their family’s new life in Australia would look like. Today, as a result of their legacy, the Nugan family is one of Australia’s most successful agricultural enterprises. The winemaking team, under the guidance of Chief Winemaker, Daren Owers, create this low run collection of premium wines. We make these wines as a tribute to their vision and the passion, which their legacy continues to instill in us, their family, to pursue their ideals of outstanding quality and service.
After the winemaking team pick the grapes, they then gently press them. Afterwards they go through slow, cool fermentation, and we do this to preserve the delicate fruit flavours. Once the grapes are dry, the wine is left to mature prior to final blending and bottling.
The Annelise Pinot Grigio Winemaker's Comments
This wine is light straw with a youthful green hue. It has enticing fresh aromas of pear and apple with citrus and tropical notes. In addition to these flavours, the wine is also crisp and vibrant palate of pear, apple and grapefuit with mineral accents and a crisp, clean finish.
WINE & FOOD MATCH
This is a very delicate wine, which is perfect as an aperitif or with seafood dishes.
