Winemaking Notes: The juice was extracted with infinite care in an air-bag press. Slow, gentle pressing avoids crushing the stalks and pips. Fermentation occurred spontaneously with native yeast in stainless-steel vats. Temperature control maximizes aromatics. As the wine matures, the tiny particles in suspension gradually sink to the bottom of the vat and form a small amount of natural deposit.
Tasting Notes: This Pinot Gris is a delightful hue of pale, twinkling golden yellow. The aromatics are subtle, with a mix of peaches, nectarines and cereal grain. Fleshy and sappy, this wine has an exquisite mouth feel, opening with fleshy, fruity notes that develop into a smooth style reminiscent of balsamic.
