Winemaker Notes
2012 was a dream vintage, coming on the heels of a few challenging years. The rainy spring and warm, even summer temperatures were perfect for growing beautiful grapes. Quality is excellent across the board.

Vineyard Notes
MATURE VINES on the coolest site on the Chalk Hill Estate give us the intensely flavored fruit for our North Slope Pinot Gris. The grapes are picked at their optimal ripeness and are handled with great care during the winemaking process. Two classic Alsatian clones provide distinctly different flavor and textural components to the blend. Barrel fermentation and aging in neutral French oak enhance the wine’s complexity.
