Our Pinot Gris remains consistent in style: complex, delightful, and eminently suitable for cellaring. Recent tastings of the 96 and 97 confirm the aging potential. Our vinification practices involve long, slow fermentation on aromatic yeast in which apple, pear, and pineapple fruit generally predominate.
This Pinot Gris' aroma's literally explode from the glass with nuances of grapefruit, lime, pear and apricot. On the palate, the feel is rich with flavors of ripe pear, apple and citrus, without losing the excellent balance between sweetness and racy acidity. The finish is long, crisp and refreshing. The wine shows great intensity and vibrancy now, and will cellar well over the next 3 to 5 years. This vintage of Pinot Gris is an excellent match for grilled fresh salmon, shellfish in cream sauce, curries and Asian foods.
