This Pinot Gris is a true regional expression, rich and textural with floral aromas of apricot and honeysuckle. The juice was fermented slowly at cool temperatures to retain the very distinctive regional and varietal characters. The ferment was stopped with 10g residual sugars to ensure a lush and palate filling wine. No oak was used in the winemaking. The resulting wine has hints of apricot and honeysuckle on the nose, and rich textural palate of stone fruits and cream balanced by citrus.
