2021 Pinot Gris "Vin Gris"

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

The Vin Gris has a salmon-orange hue with aromas of Anjou pear, yellow peach, crisp yellow apple, and hint of baking spice and toasted marshmallow.  Flavors mirror the aromas of golden delicious apple, pear, and acacia note of baking spices and toasted marshmallow.  The acidity carries the yellow fruit flavors towards a long finish. 

Production notes

The Tudor Vineyard Pinot Gris was hand-harvested on September 1st.  The grapes were destemmed, dumped into a variable capacity tank, and cold soaked for five days, then pressed, and fermented for five weeks in French Acacia puncheons.  The malo-lactic fermentation was prevented to retain acidity and freshness.  The Pinot Gris was aged on the fine lees for four months, then filtered, and bottled on March 5, 2022.
