Tasting Notes: A carefully crafted Pinot Gris produced with fruit sourced from 3 vineyards, each fermented separately and then blended at bottling with 5% Chardonnay, 3% Viognier and 2% Gewurztraminer. Both aromatic and fruity with lifted aromas of pear, melon, flowers, hay and citrus fruit on the nose. Palate entry is lush and juicy then a deliciously vibrant wave of citrus and peach acidity rushes through, driving to a dry finish where spice and lemon/lime notes linger. 
Drink now-2018.
