Winemaking Notes: The fruit was 100% whole cluster pressed, settled and racked to a stainless steel tank where the juice fermented for 16 days using Vin13 strain yeast. Fermentation was halted using a chiller, and the wine was then aged thirty days sur lie before being racked, lightly bentonite fined, filtered and bottled.
Tasting Notes: This terroir-driven Pinot Gris from the old vines in the Eola Hills opens with evocative aromas of Meyer lemon and orchard blossoms. The palate offers vibrant acidity and flavors of Gravenstein apple and verbena punctuated by an elegant vein of minerality. The wine finishes with energy and length, leaving behind an impression of sea minerals.
