Production Notes

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.

Vineyard Notes

The 2018 growing season was one of the most consistent in recent memory. Mild spring weather led to prime fruit set and ideal growing conditions. 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.
