2016 Pinot Grigio

2016 Pinot Grigio

Varietals: 100% Pinot Grigio

Vineyard: 100% Bella Vista

ABV: 12.3%

Flavor Notes: Our Pinot Grigio is quite unique! A mineral presence with apple notes. Stylistically, this wine is mid-way between the crisp lighter-bodied Pinot often produced in the United States, and the higher alcohol, fuller bodied, softer acid wines of Alsace, France.  Long lees contact and oak aging in our Stücks provide nut and butter flavors and mid-palate texture, veering almost into Chablis territory.

Pairings: This is an easy, food friendly wine. Pair with fruit, cheese, and nuts. Fresh herb pastas with oil and lighter summertime dishes. Due to the Stück aging and lees contact, some fish pairings can also compliment.

Vinification: This Pinot Grigio was whole cluster pressed, preserving the integrity of the fruit.  The wine was fermented and aged in new 1200L Stücks for 6 months, resting on it’s gross lees for this time to enhance body and mouthfeel. It was later transferred to stainless tanks for setting and bottling. 

Suggested Cellaring: Lees contact and oak aging make this perfect to enjoy now through 2020
