This Pinot Grigio is harvested from select vineyards in California whose topography, soils, and climate provide optimal grape-growing conditions to
develop ripe, round fruit flavors.
The grapes were gently pressed and fermented in upright stainless steel tanks. The fermentation was kept cold to ensure a slow process that retains the natural fruit flavors inherent in the grapes.
The wine was aged for 12 months in stainless steel tanks to maintain its crisp, fruity character.
Crisp and refreshing, layered with lime, honey and a hint of green apple.
