Pinot Gris Grigio
The team at Barefoot believe that it's in the national interest to make delightful, easy drinking wines available to everybody. Consistent wines with generous flavours that refresh the palate and make life more pleasurable. Pinot Grigio fits the bill perfectly, a food friendly style with a little more fruit and a little extra complexity. It all begins in the vineyard where the winemakers themselves take an interest in harvesting those grapes which are worthy of the Barefoot label, a wine that dances across the palate with luscious Pinot Grigio fruit characters.
Parcels of Pinot Grigio are harvested and promptly delivered to the wineworks, fruit is crushed and sent to drainers where juicers are separated from skins. A regimen of vinification techniques are employed to enhance varietal aromatics while contributing palate texture and weight. The ferments are kept between 14C and 18C to retain as much fruit character as possible. The wine remains on lees while being treated a course of battonage which adds extra richness to the palate.

Medium straw hue. Fresh and ripe pear, rockmelon and vanilla yogurt aromas along with subtle lemon and mandarin citrus notes over hints of green apple. A crisp palate with bright flavours of citrus and fresh green apple. Hints of pear and honeydew melon complement a refreshing finish. A wonderful Pinot Grigio to be enjoyed now, slightly chilled, the perfect match with chicken and seafood, spicy pasta and pizza. Refreshing!
