The Sea Change Pinot Grigio is a wonderful example of this popular grape variety from Northern Italy. Famed for its bright citrus flavours, zippy acidity and refreshing minerality, it is easy to see why Pinot Grigio is so in demand. Far from the warmth of the Mediterranean, it is the Alpine climate of the Friuli Venezia Giulia region that gives Sea Change Pinot Grigio its freshness.
Porpoises are very sensitive to changes in their marine environment. Often living around harbours, they can be more exposed to human disturbances than other marine mammals. By purchasing this Sea Change Pinot Grigio, you are directly helping organisations like Clean Coasts in Ireland fund community programmes that mitigate human impact to protect and care for our waterways, coastline and marine life.
Tasting Notes: Sea Change Pinot Grigio is full of bright citrus fruit: the zest of ripe lemons is married beautifully with the delicate floral notes of Jasmine and Orange Blossom. On the palate, the wine’s lively acidity and underlying minerals make it mouth-wateringly more-ish. Great to pair with food or simply just to enjoy chilled on a hot day.
Food Pairings: Great as an aperitif or enjoyed alfresco, Sea Change Pinot Grigio is perfect simply on its own or served alongside fresh green salads, seafood, or white meat dishes.
When to drink: Sea Change Pinot Grigio is best enjoyed when youthful and fresh. It should always be served chilled.
Find yourself a new favourite wine from Sea Change, a social enterprise making waves of change with their eco-friendly wines.
These winemakers are committed to creating exceptional drinks and caring for our oceans in equal measure. Look closely at the beautiful hand drawn illustrations on each bottle and you’ll notice the marine animals depicted have bits of plastic inside, reflecting the effects of plastic pollution.
Keen to be part of the solution, Sea Change put real thought into their own packaging. There are none of those plastic wraps around their bottle tops and the labels are a mix of paper from certified sustainable forests and grape waste too. Even the corks are made from a renewable plant-based material.
Sea Change also gives back to conservation charities who help protect marine animals too, making a donation for every bottle sold. All this adds up to a lot of small ripples of change and one big positive impact per bottle.
Better still, there’s a great variety in their award-winning range. So you can toast to making a difference whether you’re partial to a prosecco, reds like negroamaro, whites like sauvignon blanc or a rosé.
