In Monterey County where the fruit for this wine grows, cool breezes from the Pacific Ocean slow down ripening and allow the fruit to develop vibrant flavors and brisk acidity. Our own vineyards in Santa Lucia Highlands and Arroyo Seco AVAs are a significant source of fruit for this Pinot Gris.
Once harvest is complete, we ferment the grapes in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. This cool and neutral method of fermentation preserves delicate floral and stone fruit aromas and contributes to a bright finish. Enjoy notes of peach, tart pear and banana, along with a silky mouthfeel and crisp acidity. Flavors of Meyer lemon and green apple complement the finish.
