Red Pinot Gris 2019

Tasting Note

Apple and apple blossom scent with a hint of “iron”in the scent and flavor that comes from leaving white wine grapes on the skins. Abundant, concentrated red currant, grapefruit, fresh turned soil flavors. A subtle savory/spicy note is present as well. Simply delicious.

Fermented on the skins and aged in new oak barrels for one month. 100% Pinot Gris from the Newton Creek VIneyard in Philomath, Oregon. Only 2 barrels (50 cases) were made.

To this taster, intriguingly complex and memorable – this wine is something quite special.

$20.00 a bottle
