About wine: A wine of straw-like yellow colour with golden hues. A rich blossom seduces us with the freshness of citrus fruits, among which the peel of ripe lime stands out, and also pears, peaches, and shrubs and fruit trees with white blossoms (hawthorn, blackthorn, cherry). In the mouth it is pleasantly harmonious, warm, distinctly mineral, still fruity (citrus fruits, pineapple, peach or pear) with a long aftertaste in which the honey notes are intertwined with the richness of tropical spice flavours.

Pairing suggestions: The Erzetič Sivi Pinot (Pinot Gris) is recommended to be served with fresh salad plates, raw fish (carpaccio, sushi, sashimi), creamy vegetable soups of flavourful taste, stewed mussels, oven baked saltwater fish, grilled chicken or turkey, dried meat products, poultry pâtés and other similar dishes.
