Pinot Gris is a light grayish-purple colored Pinot.  Think of it as a Pinot Noir with less color.  Direct pressing of Pinot Gris grapes gives a lightly colored white wine.  Allow the juice to soak on the skins for a few days and the juice becomes pink and the wine becomes a Vin Gris.

Tasting notes

Our Vin Gris has a copper/salmon hue that is brilliantly clear.  Aromas of cantaloupe, bosc pear, green apple, graphite, and minerality predominate.  The Vin Gris is taut with tension in the mouth from the stems.  There are flavors of green and yellow apples, pears, and a hint of graphite and a purity of acidity.  The wine is dry and intense.

Production notes

Two tons of Pinot Gris was hand harvested on September 11, 2018.  At the winery, Denise and Mandy boot stomped the clusters.  The juice soaked in the skins and stems under a blanket of carbon dioxide for three days then we pressed the skins to six stainless steel barrels.  The Vin Gris was fermented for one month then cold stabilized. After aging on the lees for three months, the wine was filtered and bottled on February 1, 2019.
