Pinot Gris Glen Oaks Vineyard

2021
United States
California

Hailing from the Historic old vineyard Glen Oaks Ranch  which is now part of the Sonoma Land Trust. With its  deep rocky alluvial soils, this is home to mostly old vine  Cabernet, but Pinot Gris was chosen almost as a sort of  frost protection, as it can handle the cold bottom swath of  the rolling hillside. The Pinot Gris thrives here in its mini  micro-climate, siting near a meandering brook in its gravelly,  clay loam soils.

Picked early to preserve acidity and crushed by foot for a  2 day whole cluster cold soak which adds phenolic texture  while lending a beautiful rosé Champagne-like color. All  wild ferment in a combination of stainless and neutral oak  then aged all in neutral barrique.

Wildly perfumed of charentias melon, stone fruit, bergamot, kaffir lime leaf.
