2014 Pinot Gris
Vintage 2014 began with a mild winter and followed by a warm calm spring, perfect conditions for a short flowering, good fruit set and healthy spring growth. Temperatures nose-dived in January, the coolest January we have experienced in the vineyard in 10 years. Thankfully conditions in February & March improved and we enjoyed the stable & fine weather these months typically provide. March and April remained dry and unusually warm, counteracting our cool January. The vines proved to have a mind of their own despite our management regime and produced one of our largest seasons with large bunches of fruit in excellent condition. This wine was bottled early September.
A vibrant nose of pears floral aromas lush and exotic spice the palate, it starts fruity and has a wonderfully luscious mouth feel and finishes with a long lingering balance between the acidity and residual sugars. This wine is fabulous with spicy food or spicy dressing on foods.
