New sustainably sourced Italian wine is now available in the US market
Tussock Jumper 2020 Organic Delle Venezie Pinot Grigio, Italy ($13.99)
The grapes for this wine are selected from low-yielding, fully organic vineyards in the eastern part of Veneto. The vines are trained in the Sylvoz-Guyot cane pruned method, with plants an average of 15 years old. Harvest was at the end of August 2020, only in the early hours of the morning to ensure that the fruit maintained its freshness as it traveled from the vineyard to the winery.
Grapes were de-stemmed and delicately pressed. The must was then chilled to 10°C, and left to rest for approximately 24 hours. After clarification, the must was then racked and placed in stainless steel fermentation tanks using selected yeasts at a controlled temperature of 16°C. The wine was then left to rest on its lees for approximately 3 months, in order to maximize the extraction of the delicate aromas typical of this grape variety.
The wine is 100% organic Pinot Grigio grapes, with a color of pale straw yellow with bright orange reflections on the rim. It is 12% ABV for 750ml.
Notes of green apple, pineapple, and white pear flower unfold into delicate aromas and a long, fruit-forward, crisp finish. Pair it with vegetarian dishes, seafood, pasta with white sauce, as well as salads and sushi.
