A Gold Medal Wine Club Exclusive offering! Winemakers Anthony Riboli and Arnaud Debons employed time-tested traditional family winemaking techniques to create this flavorful and well balanced Pinot Gris. The fruit for this delicious 2006 Pinot Gris is from Riboli Estate’s El Camino Real Vineyard located in the prestigious Arroyo Seco Appellation, in Monterey County, California.

This brilliantly vibrant Pinot Gris reveals aromas of citrus with hints of wildflowers. The mouth is filled with ripe fruit flavors, including melon and green apples. Fermenting the Pinot Gris in French oak barrels added a touch of oak spice and vanilla. Stirring the lees within the barrels during fermentation added a notable richness and body. The natural acidity gives additional structure to this full-bodied Pinot Gris. Pair with Chicken under brick with fresh herb and garlic sauce, salmon, fresh green salads and light cheeses.
