The Gašper wine estate is a joint venture between a local cooperative and the Carman family, who have been in the hospitality and wine business for over 50 years. All picking is done by cooperative partners, family members and friends, which allows for a careful selection of fruit that enhances the quality of the final wine.
Goriška Brda is blessed with a climate ideally suited to viticulture, with its proximity to both the Adriatic Sea and the Alps providing dry, warm summers with cooling breezes during the crucial ripening period. Their vineyard is characterised by its ‘opoka’ marl soil and excellent sun exposure on its terraced, hillside rows.
This is one of the best value Pinot Grigios we have ever come across! Deep rooted old vines provide brilliant quality fruit giving a gorgeously rich palate balanced by fresh minerality and complexity from the terroir. This is nothing like supermarket PG but is a high class white. The nose is reminiscent of pear, grapefruit, pineapple and cinnamon. This well balanced wine has a lovely richness, with a silky finish and citrus aromas.
