This is a clean, crisp Pinot Gris that reflects the terroir of the Creston Valley. On the nose find rich aromas of fresh orchard fruits. A medium body texture, with a flavor profile of peach, nectarine and faint honey; finishing with a zesty spine of refreshing citrus and minerality.
Fermented in two separate batches. One batch saw 2-4 hours of skin contact, followed by whole berry crushing and fermentation in stainless steel. The second batch saw whole bunch crushing, fermentation in stainless steel and 4 months of fine lees contact.
Fruit: Pinot Gris (97%), Schonberger (3%)
