We press off this pinot gris right after picking and ferment 100% in a 1600 gallon French oak cask. The wine stays on the lees throughout fermentation. This, along with the large oak cask, gives the wine more texture and is a nod to a more Alsatian style.
- Very light golden color
- Lemon zest, mint, Bartlett pear and hay on the nose
- Flavors of peach pit, fresh fig, homemade nougat, baked apple with cinnamon and white clover on the palate. This Pinot Gris has great viscosity and weight with balanced acid and long finish.
