These grapes were not de-stemmed or crushed, but pressed as whole clusters and given a slow, cool stainless steel tank fermentation lasting about two weeks. This was followed by an extended period of less contact prior to blending and bottling. This wine is showing some development and complexity – mineral, stony, earth, citrus and spice aromas, with flavors of apricot, apple and fig. The mouthfeel is crisp, dry, and refreshing, but also rich, concentrated, and creamy, with a long, lush finish. This Pinot Gris has exceptional long-term aging potential and should, if properly cellared, continue to evolve and develop beautifully over the next seven to ten years.
