Climate & Soil
The climate is known for "cool nights and warm days," these conditions in the Tre Venezie are conducive to exceptional grape maturation. The soils are alluvial and vary from the calcium rich marl and flysch sandstone in the more hilly regions to clay, sand and gravel in the valley.
Our Pinot Grigio is harvested at optimal maturity levels. A soft pressing was used to enhance flavor extraction while imparting minimal color from the skins. The juice was fermented in temperature-controlled tanks and a selection of specific yeast was added at a temperature of 20ºC. To intensify the tropical fruit characteristics of the wine, a small part of surmatured grapes where added After settling, the wine was cold stabilized, filtered and bottled under sterile conditions, avoiding malolactic fermentation and preserving the fruit characteristics of the wine.
The wine is ready to drink now or over the next 2 years. Serve at 10°C to 12°C (49°F-54°F)
A wine loving sheep named Tussock Jumper once had a vision – to gather the native animals of the old and new worlds’ most famous vineyards and have them represent a unique premium range – Tussock Jumper – using exclusively native varietals. To distinguish its herd from the others, our sheep gave each selected animal a fine red jumper. And so our fable, without sense but with exquisite taste, came to be.
