Pinot Gris 2015
100% Estate Grown, First Vintage
Very crisp, mouthwatering juicy notes of sweet and spicy orange blossom mix with vanilla crème and tangy white peach and pear flavors. Finishes with a rounded, silky, vibrant mouthfeel.
Silver Medal - Makers and Masters Wine Competition March 2017
GROWING CONDITIONS: February went on the record as the coldest in central NY and winter passed slowly into a cool spring with several frosty mornings though with little consequence to the vineyards. May through July were humid and featured torrential downpours. As has been the case the last few years, a warm and sunny September has made this wine grape harvest one of the best in recent memory providing above average temperatures and dry conditions which allowed the grapes to ripen and maintain excellent integrity.
Machine harvested, the grapes were whole bunch pressed, cold settled, racked and inoculated with W15 yeast. 2 grams per liter, tartaric acid was added prior to fermentation. Fermented at 59˚F, racked at 1% on Nov. 12. Filtered and stabilized before bottling.
Food Pairing Notes
This wine pairs so nicely with flaky white fish, braised and spiced greens and is supreme with fresh Italian cannolis dusted with powdered sugar.

Fresh, crisp. Served before dinner, yet excellent with turkey Italian dish! Simple on the palette, unlike usual Sav Blnc
