Our Notes: The creamy texture and strawberry color of the Sivi Pinot is the true color of the grape and on the opposite side of the spectrum as most Italian Pinot Grigios. Grapes were hand harvested from the vineyards of Belo, Cujevca, and Jez, de-stemmed, fermented for 2 weeks on the skins in 2400 liter oak vats with wild yeast. Barreled down to used French barrique for malolactic fermentation, 12 months total on the lees, and bottled unfiltered. Complex mineral tinged aromas of custard, dried stone fruits and brioche. Jean calls it his “bread and butter” wine. Incredible density and length make it an ideal winter white and well suited for hearty vegetable dishes and cheeses.

89 Points Wine Enthusiast Magazine for the 2011: Sivi Pinot is the Slovenian name for Pinot Gris and this will delight oenophiles looking for a new orange wine. It's pinkish brown in color due to two years of barrel aging and has aromas of peach cobbler and freshly baked piecrust. Smooth in the mouth, it discloses pronounced flavors of custard and crème brûlée. Think about pairing it with some of your strongest and ripest cheeses.
