A light-gold hue in color, the 2017 Acrobat Pinot Gris shines through with bright, crisp flavors. Rose petal elements on the nose highlight balanced citrus components of lemon and grapefruit. Following the nose are flavors of fresh lime, lemon zest, and green apple. These mingle on the mid-palate, rounding out a medium bodied mouthfeel with a refreshing, bright finish.

The 2017 vintage began with a colder than average winter, with multiple snowstorms. Thankfully, Spring saw a return to normal with bud break taking place in April. As Summer approached, the classic warm days and cool nights made for ideal growing conditions without any major heat waves. During the harvest, we received less than average rainfall, which allowed for nearly perfect harvesting conditions. The 2017 vintage was fermented in 100% stainless steel tanks, which were temperature controlled to maximize fruit character. This wine benefitted from sur lie aging for 3 months prior to bottling.
