Grenache & Gris - Half Dozen

ZS2363

Pinot Gris/Grigio (or just PG to us!) can produce very neutral wines when yields are high, but it is also capable of producing some fine examples in the right hands. In Northern Italy it has proved very much at home. The Il Palù PG is grown in the North-East of Italy in the Friuli Grave region, sandwiched between the foothills of the Alps and the Adriatic. As the name of the region suggests, the soils are alluvial gravel and this high plain perfectly suits the more zesty, mineral style of PG. In the foothills of the Andes, François Lurton and his team produce a richer, weightier style from the same grape variety. By leaving the grapes to ripen for longer before harvesting, they achieve the body and depth more reminiscent of Alsace than Friuli.

In North-East Spain, Joan Sangenis’ Celler Cal Pla is based in the dramatic region of Priorat. Here, Grenache and Cariñena (aka Carignan) are grown on the region's black slate and quartz soils known locally as licorella. This is a harsh region in which to grow grapes and therefore relies on older vines and their deep roots. This produces strong, darkly fruited wines. Nearly five hours to the north, over the border in France, similar varieties produce a much lighter more elegant style of wine. Domaine Saint Antonin was only started in 1994 and can be found 20km north-west of Béziers. Organic farming is the order of the day at this fine estate. Their Les Jardins cuvée is aged in tank with the emphasis on fruit and drinkability in its youth.

Which of the different styles you prefer is purely down to you but at least you can have some fun finding out!

This case will be delivered with accompanying tasting notes for the wines included, making it an excellent gift option or a real treat for yourself.
