Winemaker's Notes

Distinctive powerful fruit reminiscent of pears and apples with a hint of cinnamon spice. More body than Pinot Grigio from Italy, less ponderous weight than Pinot Gris from Alsace.

In warm weather serve slightly chilled with a shellfish salad or ceviche, light poultry dishes and pasta salads.

Alcohol: 13.9%
