WTN: Pinot Grigio, Jermann, 1995

Pale golden with a pinkish shade. Very fresh nose of cut grass and lemon/bergamot seeds with some nuts and even a distinct note of tobacco leaf in the background. Full-bodied, rich but balanced palate with medium acidity and a still bright fruit (apples and citrus) shining through the finish, in which kiwi and orange peel add a wonderful complexity. It's my first taste of a PG that old, so I didn't know if the fruit was intact, and it is, for sure. The finish is incredible.

Now Jermann PG boasts the Venezia Giulia IGT, don't know what changed in the wine-making though.

I'm surprised to hear that this wine has retained its freshness.

Absolutely, futronic.

And it got better in the glass, too.

BTW, never tasted the pricey Jermann Vintage Tunina (white blend of sauvignon, chardonnay, ribolla gialla, malvasia istriana and picolit) but I've read of a vertical tasting held in 2002 in which the 1981 still had life. Maybe the picolit has to do with it.
