Producer Notes: The nose draws you in with fresh picked strawberry, juicy watermelon and guava, while the palate displays layers of white nectarine, cantaloupe and more melon. This fun and vibrant wine grabs your palate and does not let go. It screams for warm days on the deck and time with friends. Goes with everything from oysters to paté—enjoy!
What is Vin Gris?
Vin Gris is a French term for a pale pink wine made from Pinot Noir grapes. Our Vin Gris is 85% whole cluster pressed and 15% saignee. We harvested clusters at low sugars and put them directly in a press, just like we would with our Chardonnay. We then fermented the juice in tank to preserve the freshness and aromatics. The saignee portion of the blend was “bled” from tank (saignee is a French term meaning "to bleed") on the second day after crushing Pinot Noir grapes. This concentrates the juice on the skins for our lush Pinot Noir and gives us a bit of light, lively juice to use for our Vin Gris. This wine sees no oak contact, the vivid aromatics are preserved for your sipping pleasure!
