100% Pinot Grigio
Pinot Gris / Pinot Grigio
Russian River Valley, Sonoma County
100% stainless steel
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 lies stirring until bottling.
The winter of 2018—2019 brought above average rainfall to the Russian River; with the bulk of the rain falling January through May. Spring temperatures were cooler, but began to warm in August through October. Weather at harvest was ideal. The end of August saw a bit of a heat wave, but the month of September was perfect for ripening.
