The Pinot Gris grape has grown in popularity of late and is particularly attractive to those who love Pinot Noir. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Pinot Gris originates from the Burgundian area of France and has also been recognized as a genetic mutation of Pinot Noir.
Using grapes from three different vineyards (Sierra Madre, Lucas & Lewellen and La Encantada) within Santa Barbara County, this 2014 Pinot Gris is graced with fresh aromas and a lively palate. On the nose you can find predominating notes of lime pith, honeyed apricot and struck flint. On the palate, the wine is crisp with vibrant acidity and alluring flavors of lime and wet stone. Pair with lightly sauced white fish or soft goat’s milk cheese. 97% Pinot Gris, 3% Pinot Blanc. Drink now until 2020.
