Winemaker Jeffrey Blair Notes
Only 125 cases produced. The 2014 growing season saw little winter and spring rainfall and near perfect conditions throughout the summer and fall. Using free run and a light press, fifty percent of the Pinot Gris juice was fermented and aged in neutral French oak barrels; the other fifty percent in small stainless steel barrels to preserve the lush fruit character. Lees stirring was employed on both the oak and stainless steel components to add body and structure. In the glass, this Pinot Gris is a revelation. Made in a drier, “Alsatian style,” its racy peach and nectarine aromas and flavors are backed by refreshing acidity, and a hint of minerality. It is a natural pairing for shellfish, chicken, and pork. Please note that this Pin ...more... ot Gris is from a small vineyard which grows Clone 42, probably the greatest Pinot Gris clone.
