Tasting Notes

91 Points, Wine Enthusiast

"Nutty and bright, this is a sleek, acid-focused and fresh white wine with earthy minerality. It showcases deft aromas of white flowers and citrus while leading to a core of succulent peach and melon."

The 2018 La Cruz Vineyard Pinot Gris is a bright, dry, and highly aromatic wine. Upon the first sniff you are greeted with intense aromas of white peach and jasmine. Flavors of nectarine, Meyer lemon, and yellow apple burst with tingly minerality on the palate. The smooth, full-bodied mouth feel provides a long, refreshing finish.

Vintage

The 2018 vintage started with a cool spring, with fruit set being consistent. The moderate summer temperatures, with very few heat spikes, gave us a perfect ripening season. This ideal weather allowed us to harvest each block at our perfect ripeness, with excellent flavor development and the natural acidity just right. The long growing season gave us wines with great structure and concentration. The Pinot Gris yields are kept very low and fruit is allowed to hang a little longer to ensure we get the fruit intensity, mouth feel, and vibrant aromatics we are looking for.

Pinot Gris naturally draws intense amount of minerality from the ancient sea bed soils of the La Cruz vineyard, making for an intense, Alsatian style wine. Once pressed, the juice is transferred to neutral oak barrels for native yeast fermentation and aging. We used Nomacorc 100 closures, with a specific low oxygen ingress rate, eliminating any oxidation. Nomacorc 100 is a 100% plantbased closure with a carbon neutral footprint, aligning with our mission.
