Aromas & Flavors
This wine has delicious aromas and flavors of lychee, honeysuckle, white peach, dried apricot, mango and lime zest with a touch of minerality. Full-bodied and bright at the same time, this Pinot Grigio’s concentrated aromas, flavors and refreshing acidity linger to the finish.
Pinot Grigio is perfect as an apéritif and is ideal to pair with many types of cuisines. Our favorite pairings include dishes such as seafood salad, pan-seared scallops, oysters on the half shell, or entrées with lively and spicy flavors one might find in Asian cuisine.
How It's Made
Individual lots of hand-harvested grapes are gently whole-cluster pressed to minimize any color or harsh tannin extraction, then racked to stainless steel tanks for cold fermentation. This wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation, so it retains its bright flavors and crisp acidity. Depth and complexity are enhanced with weekly lees stirring until bottling.
The winter of 2019-2020 produced average rainfall in Sonoma County, with the bulk of rain falling January through May. Spring temperatures were mild and warm, with bud break two weeks earlier than average. Temperatures during the summer were above average, with few nights of fog and cloud cover. The month of September was perfect for grape ripening, and harvest was completed on October 2.
