Winemaker's Notes:

With the breezes that keep Monterey cool during the day and coastal weather to keep the grapes warm at night, Arroyo Seco is one of the best-known regions for growing the Pinot grape. The climate slowly diffuses the sugars from the skins into the grapes and allows for gradual ripening, thereby creating wonderful Pinot Grigio flavors.

Aromas of vibrant grapefruit and green apple with notes of lemon. A crisp, refreshing mouthfeel with flavors of green apple, citrus and mineral. This wine pairs well with salads, light seafood, delicate chicken dishes and spicy foods.

My Notes:

About Ivan Tamas Wines:

In 1984, Iván Tamás Fuezy and Steve Mirassou left their respective companies to start Iván Tamás Winery. Having worked in the wine business for decades in a time when the industry was far more fraternal than it is now, Ivan and Steve's paths crossed often. In fact, Ivan worked with Steve at Mirassou Vineyards for a time. Thus, the partnership began with a high level of familiarity. After several years as negociants, the two partners found a home in the Livermore Valley. Today Iván Tamás is a bonded winery producing about 60,000 cases per year of eight varietals, including the "house" Chardonnay and Cabernet for the Ritz-Carlton Hotels around the world.
