2012 Kabaj Sivi Pinot (Pinot Gris) Slovenia

SKU #1258491

The Goriska Brda Hills for a hilly landscape in western Slovenia, north of Nova Gorica on the Italian border. The region has a mild sub-Mediterranean climate with plentiful sunshine. This is the ideal location for grape growing, according to Katja Kabaj Morel and her French oenologist husband, Jean-Michel Morel. Their Pinot Grigio is crystal clear in color with a fruity aroma reminiscent of green apples and flowers. The fruitiness reappears in the mouth, along with minerality closing in on a long finish. Great with rich pasta dishes as well as most cooked vegetables.

Pinot Gris

- Also known as Pinot Gris in France, where it originated as a mutation of Pinot Noir. The berries can vary in color from yellowish to bluish-violet producing wines that range from white to slightly pink. The most successful wines from the grape come from the Collio in Friuli (Northeast Italy), where the wines are light- to medium-bodied, crisp, dry and, because of their high acidity, complementary to the region's foods like speck, Prosciutto di San Daniele and polenta. In Alsace, where the grape takes a back seat to more popular varietals like Gew├╝rztraminer and Riesling, it is generally rich and honeyed. Other successful plantings of Pinot Grigio exist in Austria, Germany, Hungary and Romania, with even smaller amounts planted in British Columbia, Australia, New Zealand and California.
