Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Bright and fresh, with sun infused notes of lemon, pear, and grapefruit. This wine is perfect for salads and marinated seafood. Steely citrus rind and firm acidity contribute to the lengthy mineral finish.
Vineyard Notes
The fruit for our 2015 Pinot Gris comes from two vineyard blocks on the valley floor of our High Serenity Vineyard. Both of these blocks are comprised of gravelly, sandy loams and are located in one of coolest vineyard sites in all of Lake County, at 1800 feet elevation. Our Pinot Gris clones 146 and 152 are certified Alsatian, making them authentic in their varietal expression.
Production Notes
These Pinot Gris grapes were hand-harvested early in the morning, so they arrived to the winery cold and were processed using minimal handling. After a gentle whole-cluster pressing, the Pinot Gris juice was fermented with native yeasts in a combination of neutral French oak barrels (40%), small stainless steel barrels (30%), stainless steel tanks (15%), and concrete tanks (15%). The wine in the barrels and tanks was then aged for 6 months sur lie with battonage (lees stirring) every 2-3 weeks to create additional body, texture and viscosity in the wine. This wine was lightly fined and filtered at bottling.
