BLEND: 100% Pinot Gris
Gamache Vineyard, Columbia Valley AVA, WA
ABV: 14% abv
WINEMAKER NOTES: The 2016 vintage began remarkably hot in the spring but cooled off by summer. This extended hang time allowed for both gradual and even ripening–perfect weather for preserving the delicate aromatics we were looking for. After hand picking, the grapes were pressed at low pressure to avoid harsh phenolics. Careful to keep oxygen exposure to a minimum, we fermented and aged the wine in 100% stainless steel, resulting in a nice, aromatic, and fresh style.
