A new addition to the winery this year, our 2020 Pinot Gris is our first ever 100% Barrel Fermented Pinot Gris. 

Tasting Notes:

A rich and luscious texture fills the mouth with complex notes of candied apple, ripe melon, lemon oil, and marzipan. A long finish is accentuated with mineral notes of clay and chalk with baking spice and Werthers caramel rounding out the palate.
