THE WINE
During the grape growing season, Eastern Washington boasts warm summer days followed by cool nights, ensuring that grapes ripen fully while retaining ample natural acidity. Our 2015 Pinot Grigio shows a complexity of melon, stone fruit, and fresh herbal aromas. It is fresh, with flavors of pear and guava, a rich mid-palate, and a crisp finish. Pair this food-friendly wine with fresh oysters, grilled wild salmon, or grilled asparagus.

THE VINTAGE AND VINEYARDS
2015 was one of the warmest and driest Washington growing seasons on record, and a drought year, which resulted in ripe, full-bodied white wines. The majority of the fruit for the 2015 Pinot Grigio was grown in the cooler Yakima Valley (70%), where sunny slopes and cool winds combine perfectly to yield well-balanced Pinot Grigio. The remaining fruit was sourced from premier vineyards in Snipes Mountain (18%) and Columbia Valley (11.5%).

THE WINEMAKING
Our Pinot Grigio grapes were harvested at night or in the early morning, when the fruit is cool, to preserve its fresh flavors. After gentle, whole-berry pressing, the juice was fermented in stainless steel between 48°F and 57°F to retain its fresh, fruit character.

Randomly tried this wine at a restaurant on our way home from vacation. My fiancé and I both loved it so much we took the bottle to go and are buying it for our wedding.
