2014 Vin Gris of Pinot Noir
Santa Rita Hills
This Vin Gris is surprising and delighting white and red wine drinkers alike! It’s vibrant and luscious with aromatics and flavors of wild strawberry and peach with a little pear and a hint of grapefruit. The tannins remind you of stone fruit plucked fresh from the tree. Allowed to have skin contact for 24 hours in a cold soak before pressing, this wine was fermented at a very low temperature to bring out the aromatics and give it the mouthfeel you would expect from a perfectly DRY rosé. Bright acidity assures that it is anything but boring! And you’ve got to love the deep salmon color and copper highlights. It pairs well with almost anything – your favorite charcuterie and cheese plate, a fresh salad, fish tacos and, of course, friends! It’s a great artisanal rosé.
