Tasting Notes

The 2013 Pinot Gris is light, straw yellow in color with aromas of tropical fruit and soft notes of Granny Smith apple. Hints of citrus follow through into a pear and stone fruit finish. This Pinot Gris wonderfully expresses the quality of our vineyard and cool-climate of the Finger Lakes.

Winemaker Notes

On 10/01/2013, 14.2 tons of Pinot Gris was harvested with a harvest chemistry of 22.7 Brix, a TA of 7.4 g/L, and a pH of 3.35. The grapes were crushed, de-stemmed, pressed to tank (in 2 press loads) and settled for 2 days at 40°F. After being racked off the juice lees, the juice was fermented for 14 days to .6% residual sugar. Chilling was used to halt fermentation. The wine was racked off the gross lees 3 weeks after fermentation had ended and was left outside to cold-stabilize.

Food Pairing

The complexity and full flavor of the 2013 vintage make this wine ideal for food pairing. Whether you’re preparing a light meal such as a grilled zucchini salad or pesto pasta or perhaps a heavier protein such as seared salmon, this wine is perfect. Enjoy this bright and beautifully balanced wine slightly chilled.
