Winemaker Jeffrey Blair Notes
Fifty percent of the free run and lightly pressed juice was fermented and aged in neutral French oak cooperage, with extended lees stirring - to add body and structure without overpowering barrel character. Fifty percent was fermented and aged in stainless steel, to maximize the fresh fruit aspects of the wine. The result is a limited release of only 218 cases that is everything a Pinot Gris should be: lush tropical fruit flavors allied to bright, refreshing acidity. Made in a drier, "Alsatian style," it is delicious now but will also reward patient cellaring over the next two to three years. It is a natural for sipping this summer and fall and pairing to lighter, outdoor fare: shellfish, chicken, pork, and seafood.
