Winemaker’s Notes

To create an elegant, Pinot Gris with vibrant fruit flavors, we pick the fruit in the early morning hours, and immediately separate the skins from the juice during pressing. After a multi-day settling process, we then draw off the juice and ferment it in stainless steel tanks at cold temperatures. Our Pinot Gris is an extremely versatile wine. Complex and interesting, it has a clean, crisp finish with wonderful nuances of melon and pear that mingle on the palate. Delightfully fresh and fruity aromas flow into a long, perfectly balanced finish.
