One of our favorite wines to make each year, we feel that producing stunning, varietal-specific Pinot Gris is quite difficult. Modeled after an Alsatian style, we focus on balancing the varietals spicy character with both texture and elegance - seeking the perfect combination of richness and ultra bright acidity. Our block at Spanish Springs sits along a very low yielding hillside that grows in marine sandstone. 12 hours of skin contact precedes a very gentle pressing, followed by a slow fermentation in new and neutral French oak cooperage. Twice weekly lees stirring helps to build silky texture during its 6 months of elevage. Explosive and complex, with Satsuma mandarin, citrus, nectarine, spice and flowers framed against crunchy acidity and a minerality that comes from the ocean breezes that waft over Spanish Springs every day.
