My focus is to produce Pinot gris made in the style of Alsace. These wines are known for their textural complexity; the way the wine feels and moves inside your mouth. Pinot gris intrigues me because of its unique spiciness. By picking late and harvesting at full ripeness, Pinot gris's signature spice component of Pinot gris is fully revealed.
The 2009 Pinot gris, Vitae Springs Vineyard has concentrated spice notes and a sense of chili pepper-like heat along with Asian pear, kiwi, orange peel and sweet citrus blossom aromas. Apple, pear, white flowers and pie spice flavors evolve into minerality. Backed by fresh acidity, its fruit is balanced with spice and minerals. Completely dry, it is both textural and persistent in the mouth. Bottled in late June with a bit of CO2, its fruit will continue to evolve for many months. It is a great match for salmon, pork, fish, and Asian-influenced foods and dishes with spicy notes.
"The 2009 Pinot Gris Vitae Springs Vineyard spent 8 months on its lees. It is medium straw-colored with a fragrant perfume of melon, baking spices, and tangerine zest. Creamy textured with lively lemon curd flavors, it displays outstanding grip, fruit intensity, and length. Drink this pleasure-bent effort over the next 2-3 years. All three of these white wines are excellent values."

Pinot Gris/Grigio(PEE-noh gree/GREE-jee-oh) While Pinot Grigio is in fact the same grape as Pinot Gris (just the Italian take on it), the differences of wine they create can be immense. Pinot Gris' most popular and successful region is Alsace, France, an area of the country that actually puts the name of the grape on the label.
