WINE OVERVIEW

A great example of why we make Pinot Gris! Aromatically it encompasses fresh green pear and ripe white peach. The body has a hefty weight that is balanaced by juicy acid. Both slowly fade bringing forward a soft, sweet finish. A great example of how the components of our Three Vineyards blended together become harmonious.

HARVEST OVERVIEW

The 2017 vintage is one of the most well-balanced of the last five years, with excellent quality of flavor and acidity levels, and yields bearing higher than normal in all varieties. Fruitfulness caused some problems early on from large berries on full clusters, which led to a bit of uneven ripening. Early season powdery mildew, due to a wet spring, led to in-field sorting early in the growing season. By harvest, blocks were in pristine condition. Ideal fall temperatures allowed us to pick based on flavor development.
