2020 Pinot Gris

  • Grown on our estate winery, dry-farmed, fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged in Oregon oak barrels. Fresh floral aromas give way to fleshy texture and fresh peaches. Soft and easy to drink, with just enough tannins to make it a dynamic wine for food pairings. We fermented this wine three different ways. We used whole cluster press, the way we ferment a traditional white wine, to give it classic pinot gris varietal characteristics and soft texture. We fermented on its skins, the way we ferment a traditional red wine, to give it color, structure, and depth of flavor. And we fermented it carbonic, the way we ferment our rosé, to give it a bit of extra color, a lot of extra fruit flavor, and complexity.
