This Pinot gris is an elegant expression of this versatile varietal. Intensely aromatic powdery floral notes give way to a palate of Asian pear, Meyer lemon and rose petal. Balanced and crisp, this wine is a great match for many dishes from chicken paella or moules-frites to pork roast.
Grapes were hand-picked and brought directly to the winery in 1/2 ton totes in perfect condition. They were whole cluster pressed and placed into temperature controlled stainless steel fermenters, where they were slowly cold-fermented at 45°F for maximum varietal character. 15% of the Pinot gris was fermented in neutral barrels at 55°F to enhance mouthfeel and aged on the lees for four months before bottling.
