Originating in Carneros, our Pinot Gris is an artful display of full round flavors and highlights of citrus and green apple.
A perfect companion for the lingering days of summer, the 2020 Pinot Gris twirls out of the glass with pristine notes of white flowers, green apple and white nectarine. Pleasant aromas hinting at peach, melon and lemon peel are prominent, balancing deeper aromas of allspice and a chalky mineral note. Supple, sleek and clean on the palate, the 2020 Pinot Gris is ready to enjoy now.
The 2020 season will be remembered for factors beyond the typical harvest season. It was a warm, dry winter, with rain and cooler weather not arriving until the end of March. While the mild spring season brought us a great early start, our winery working conditions had extensive safety protocols put into place due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Summer brought cool mornings and warm days, but harvest was interrupted by wildfires across California. The white wine harvest started in early August. Despite the unprecedented conditions, the wines are showing excellent development in cellar, reflecting a fine vintage year. Our winemakers remain optimistic and very complimentary of the high quality achieved from this unparalleled vintage.
Fruit for this delicately styled Pinot Gris comes from a well-established Carneros ranch in the cool southernmost growing region in Napa Valley. Shallow clay loam soils join with marine-influences from San Pablo and San Francisco Bays to keep temperatures moderate, allowing fruit to evolve with balanced acidity and flavors.
Fruit was gently picked and sent straight to press. It underwent a cool, slow fermentation in stainless steel with no malolactic fermentation or oak aging, allowing for fresh fruit and floral characters, as well as crisp acidity to be highlighted in the wine.
