This limited-production Pinot Gris is first noticed for its flaxen color. The pale gold appearance gives way to a complex bouquet of wet stone, violets, white peach, and grapefruit elements. On the palate, a supple mouthfeel is accompanied by fresh pear and pineapple flavors, enhanced by components of rose water and lime zest. This complex balance of fruit, minerality, and brightness leads to a smooth medium-long finish. Enjoy now until 2031.

Wine EnthusiastYoung, big and pleasantly chunky, this flavorful wine is loaded with green apple, tart melon and enough acidity to conjure up gooseberries. Enjoy it now for its exceptional fruit and freshness.
