2022 was an ideal vintage for early ripening white varietals like Pinot Gris. Plenty of subsoil moisture and mild days delivered a wine with an intense fruit profile. The nose is abundant with Bartlett pear and red apple skin. Some subtle rose petal perfume adds aromatic depth. Yellow cherry and a hint of cinnamon spice round out the extraordinary aromatics. A gentle entry with ripe pear carrying through to a core of stonefruit. The texture is plush and supple and a silky tannin line is all wrapped up in perfectly tensioned acidity.
Whole bunch-pressed fruit is cold-soaked prior to racking. Fermented with cloudy juice with extended lees maturation.
