Pinot Gris (fr.) = Pinot Grigio (it.) = Grauburgunder (de.) = Sivi Pinot (sl.)
An international variety, thought to be a mutant clone of Pinot Noir. Recognised by its greyish-blue to brownish-pink grapes, you can also find greenish-yellow, similar to other white grapes.
Grown around the World and especially popular in north-eastern Italian wine regions (Friuli, Veneto) where it is called “pinot grigio”.
At Lepa Vida, Sivi Pinot represents approximately 20% of all the vines. We take great care of Sivi Pinot starting in the vineyards; lowering yields by “cordon speronato” cultivation, making sure that the leaves are only partially removed to keep the crisp acidity, and picking the grapes by hand at the beginning of the harvest.
Our Sivi Pinot is fermented in stainless steel tanks and always bottled as a single-variety wine.
