Winemaker Notes

Pear, honeydew melon, floral and smokey notes are matched on the palate by flavors of pear, tangerine, and melon with a mineral length. Clean and focused with an oily weight on the palate.

RP 89
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Pinot Gris (there is also 5% Riesling) comes in with five grams of sugar, 7.8 of total acidity and 12.7% alcohol. It was sourced from the winery's Nutt Road Vineyard. The addition of Riesling is not an accident of harvesting—Peter Becraft said that in certain years they will "blend in small percentages of Riesling to add structure and help accentuate the bright fruit." Beautifully textured, this reminds me more of Pinot Grigio than Alsace Pinot Gris—it is lively and fresh with a fine finish but not big depth, at least not like some in Alsace. It's hard to believe just 5% Riesling added that freshness, but it may have helped a bit. The finish is lovely, lingering and showing surprising amounts of silk for texture. There is a slight reductive hint that mostly blows off.

As the most historic wine-producing region in New York state, winemaking in the Finger Lakes area dates back to the 1820s and today as a region, accounts for 90% of the state’s total wine production.

Its narrow and deep lakes created by the movement of Ice Age glaciers create an environment similar to the classic Riesling-loving regions of Europe, namely Germany and Austria. The Finger Lakes retain summer heat that incidentally warms up cold winter air, making it fall down from the lakes’ steep slopes. When spring comes, the lakes, already cooled by cold winter weather, stave off vine budding until the danger of frost has subsided. The main lakes of the zone, that is those big enough to moderate the climate in this way, are the focal points of prime vineyard areas. They include Canandaigua, Keuka, Seneca, and Cayuga.

While Riesling has fueled most of the region’s success, today Pinot noir and Cabernet Franc enjoy some attention.

Showing a unique rosy, purplish hue upon full ripeness, this “white” variety is actually born out of a mutation of Pinot Noir. The grape boasts two versions of its name, as well as two generally distinct styles. In Italy, Pinot Grigio achieves most success in the mountainous regions of Trentino and Alto Adige as well as in the neighboring Friuli—all in Italy’s northeast. France's Alsace and Oregon's Willamette Valley produce some of the world's most well-regarded Pinot Gris wine. California produces both styles with success.

Tasting Notes for Pinot Grigio

Pinot Grigio is a dry, white wine naturally low in acidity. Pinot Grigio wines showcase signature flavors and aromas of stone fruit, citrus, honeysuckle, pear and almond. Alsatian styles are aromatic (think rose and honey), richly textured and sometimes relatively higher in alcohol compared to their Italian counterpart. As Pinot Grigio in Italy, the style is often light and charming.

Perfect Food Pairings for Pinot Grigio

The viscosity of a typical Alsatian Pinot Gris allows it to fit in harmoniously with the region's rich foods like pork, charcuterie and foie gras. Pinot Grigio, on the other hand, with its citrusy freshness, works well as an aperitif wine or with seafood and subtle chicken dishes.

Sommelier Secrets for Pinot Grigio

Given the pinkish color of its berries and aromatic potential if cared for to fully ripen, the Pinot Grigio variety is actually one that is commonly used to make "orange wines." An orange wine is a white wine made in the red wine method, i.e. with fermentation on its skins. This process leads to a wine with more ephemeral aromas, complexity on the palate and a pleasant, light orange hue.
