Product Description

Limited Release
Pinot Grigio

Character: Our wonderfully fresh Pinot Grigio shows delicious ripe pear and green apple notes on the nose, followed by a combination of citrus fruits and white peach on the palate.

At FirstCape our passion will always be the quality of our wines, however we are also committed to our environment responsibilities. Our wines remain unchanged but our commitment to carbon reduction means that they are now bottled in this new ultra efficient glass. This bottle assists our environment in a number of ways, the most important being...
Energy Efficiency: This bottle is more efficient to produce which means large reductions in the energy needed to manufacture.
Fuel Reduction: This lighter weight glass also leads to more efficient fuel usage for our cargo ships coming from South Africa.
Working Together: Through our sponsorship of British & Irish Lions rugby, we want to show how wine, sport and environmental issues can all work together.

Alc. 11.5% Vol.
We create our Limited Release wine from specially selected parcels of grapes sourced from within our family of FirstCape growers.
Wine of South Africa
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. REGION: Western Cape. CHARACTER: Our wonderfully fresh Pinot Grigio shows delicious ripe pear and green apple notes on the nose, followed by a combination of citrus fruits and white peach on the palate.

History

Our wines are all grown and produced by a dynamic team of neighbouring farmers, all co-owners of the FirstCape brand. We believe this is the best way to guarantee the quality of FirstCape, as they care more about the wines from the vine to the shelf.

Regional Information

Produced and owned by neighbours around the Breede River Valley in the Western Cape. The vineyards are in the lee of the Slanghoek mountains whose cooling shade allows the vines to retain their fresh acidity while still developing ripe fruit flavours.

Current Vintage

2013

Vinification Details

The grapes are fermented at a low temperature in stainless steel tanks to retain the fresh, crisp nature of the wine. Left un-oaked so that the natural fruit flavours can shine through.

Nice Pinot

Excellent Pinot. Better than usual supermarket standard. Clean, crisp and a good taste. Not bitter. Not sure what other reviewers were drinking.

Very poor wine

Do not buy as not a nice wine. I had to pour down the drain as not able to drink. Complained to Ocado but nothing back !

Rating: 1 star out of 5

Disgusting!

Wine tasted fizzy and had a cheesy after-taste. It went down the sink!

Rating: 1 star out of 5
