Our first Pinot Gris is delicately fragrant, clean, simple with lightly citric, grapefruit, lemon lime and mineral flavors.
Pinot Gris is a white wine grape variety of the species Vitis Vinifera. Thought to be a mutant clone of the Pinot Noir grape, it normally has a grayish-blue fruit, accounting for its name (“gris” meaning “grey” in French) but the grape can have a brownish pink to black and even white appearance.
Grapes were destemmed, crushed and pressed and the juice cold settled, fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks. The wine is bottled with less than .2% residual reducing sugar.
In the bottle the wine ages well for 1-2 years, but is ready to drink as soon as it rests for a fortnight after bottling.
Compliments dishes flavored with cumin or ginger or paired with trout, fresh oysters or shrimp cocktail.
