Winemaker's Notes:

The growing season in 2009 produced white wines with great aromatics and a bright fresh character. Our ‘09 Pinot Gris is no exception. It is very aromatic with notes of fresh ripe pear, yellow apple and a pleasant floral/ herbal accent. On the palate it bursts into flavors of ripe honeydew melon with hints of mango overlaying ripe apple/pear character. The long finish is dry, fresh and crisp with a sweet/tart apple essence and distinct mineral qualities.
