Pilato Pinot Bijeli (Pinot Blanc) 2012

Pinot Bijeli or Pinot Blanc (White Pinot) is a beautiful example of a fruit led Istrian wine. The vines grow in ‘rust’ red terra rossa soil over a layer of limestone rock on a slightly elevated plain at 200m above sea level. The average age of the vines is around 15 years.
The climate is ideal for producing wines with a full expression of fruit. Hot summers with rain throughout the year keep the landscape verdant even in the height of summer as there are frequent thunder storms There is rarely snow in the winter, which are generally mild to cold as the Adriatic Sea stabilises the climate of coastal regions.
