The wine begins with pleasant aromas of honey tinged fruit, primarily peach, apricot and a little pear. Sur lee aging with monthly bâtonnage adds a soft, round texture to the mouthfeel. A rich layered Pinot Gris with aromas of peach, pear, apple strudel, honey, cantaloupe, and fresh bread. The mouthfeel is full and textured from the lees aging in the barrels.
Pork, chicken, sausage, bratwurst, aged cheese, pasta with lemon cream sauces.
Moderate vintage gave the minimal crop ripe flavors of cantaloupe and peach along with soft acid profile.
Ripe fruit from all of our Pinot Gris vineyards that was barrel fermented together from this sparse vintage. A full malolactic fermentation and monthly bâtonnage gave this wine a creamy mouthfeel and complex nose.
