WINEMAKING Vin Gris was made from Pinot Noir grapes grown in Summerland, harvested in late October. The wine was whole bunch pressed to large concrete tanks. Added complexity and texture were achieved with a native yeast fermentation and a full malolactic fermentation. The wine was bottled unfiltered in April 2018.
WINE PROFILE This wine highlights the delicacy and fruit forward notes of whole bunch pressed Pinot Noir from an organically certified vineyard. This Vin Gris exhibits fresh floral notes with lively tropical fruits framed by a juicy acidity. Intensely textured from concrete fermentation and aging.
