Pinot Grigio, while pale yellow in the glass, generally has a grayish-blue tint when on the vine. These dark-hued skins carry high tannins that have to be carefully handled throughout winemaking. Upon picking, grapes were gently destemmed and crushed and the juice was pressed clear. They then fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel for up to a month to preserve the distinctive fruit-forward flavors, producing a wine that shows a complexity of character and purity of taste.
