Winemaker's Notes:

White gold/platnum straw color. Aromas of pear, cantaloupe, lime zest, tropical fruit and spice. Flavors of citrus, mango, pineapple and honey. This wine has great weigth and acidity, with a nice balance of acid and sugar, and a long crisp finish with minerality. One of America's finest white wines, our Domaine Pinot Gris is 100% steel tank fermented and aged for 11 months on the lees.
