Pinot Gris

Pinot Gris Wine Details
Price: $15.00 per bottle

Description: Our signature style is to add a touch of barrel fermeneted Auxerrois to the blend for that kiss of toast and a small percentage of Pinot Blanc for viscosity, while still focusing on the quintessential profile of the Pinot Gris grape." Bright, fruity, creamy style. Overt and pretty aromas of melon, honey, cream, pear, nutmeg, almond and flower. Soft and rich mouthfeel with generous flavors of pear, mineral, melon, cream and spice interwoven with well balanced acidity. The finish is vivid and long, with lingering cream, mineral and pear flavors.

Pinkish-white variety producing a very crisp white wine. Grown in Oregon, the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, and more and more in California, it shows promise for other cool climates. Also known as Tokay d'Alsace in France, Rulander in Germany, and Pinot Grigio in Italy.
