Winemaker's Notes

We blend 6 vineyards' worth of hand-selected Pinot Gris clusters, for this 100% varietal bottling. The nuances and complexity of each Russian River location add to the unique personality of this wine. Our French Coquard press is the most delicate of them all, and presses so gently, so as to not extract any harsh components from seeds or skin. To ensure a lively, crisp acidity, we allow only 25% of the juice to ferment sur lie in 60-gallon French oak barrels. The rest is cold fermented in stainless steel, giving the wine a bright, fresh, crisp character that is highly desirable.
