A perfumed Pinot Gris with aromas of melon and stone fruit, polished texture on the palate.
Variety: 100% Pinot Gris
Location: San Benito, Sonoma Valley, CA
Wildly perfumed of charentias melon, stone fruit, bergamot, makrut lime with refined texture on the palate.
Picked early to preserve acidity and crushed by foot for a 3 day whole cluster cold soak which adds phenolic texture and lending a beautiful roseate hue. Naturally fermented in stainless and oak puncheons, aged in neutral barrique.
The fruit for this wine came from small lots from two different sites; half from the gravelly loam and limestone soils of San Benito and half from the deep fractured rick and alluvial soils of Sonoma Valley. Both sites produced wines uniquely idiosyncratic all their own, but put together unwound a complex. Layered and delicious combination of flavors.
