Winemaker's Notes:

The Estancia Pinot Grigio is a fresh, youthful wine capturing the terroir of the Monterey Pinnacles Vineyard. A long, cool growing season, deep well drained decomposed granite soil, low yields, hand-selected clusters and gentle, minimal winemaking deliver this fruit driven wine. Reminiscent of Alsatian style Pinot Gris, this wine has vibrant Anjou pear, pippin apple, and creamy citrus flavors with a lingering, crisp mineral finish. Serve as the perfect accompaniment to grilled fish, poultry, light cream sauces, spicy Asian cuisine, or as a refreshing poolside beverage.

About Estancia:

Estancia, based in Monterey, was founded in 1986. The name Estancia is roughly translated from the Spanish word for "estate," and emphasizes our conviction that the world's best wines capture the essence of their place of origin. At Estancia we control the process from the start—from the trials in our experimental vineyard blocks, to planting, harvesting, fermenting and aging the wines. We've built a winery that allows us to devote the same attention to detail in winemaking that we give to our grapes. We use open-top fermenters and small basket presses for our Pinot Noir and new red-wine fermentation tanks that are fit for the diverse blocks in our Paso Robles vineyards. It is this hands-on crafting of the wines, from grapes to bottle, that result in our superior wine quality.
