screw cap wine

Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 93% Pinot Gris, 4% Chardonnay and 3% White Riesling.

This vintage reveals vibrant aromas and flavors of green apple and citrus complemented by a hint of mineral and a crisp, refreshing mouthfeel.

Pairs well with salads, light seafood, delicate fish 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.
