2018 Rock Pile Pinot Gris

Tasting Notes
This Pinot Gris has complex aromas of yellow apple, baked pear, honey and melon. Orchard and citrus fruit notes on the palate are complemented by subtle spice and mineral undertones. This wine has remarkable texture and weight, while remaining fresh with a clean and pleasant finish.

Food Pairings
This is a very versatile pairing wine that would work well with seafood dishes such as Halibut, Scallops and Salmon. Also pairs nicely with a variety of lighter summery dishes such as grilled vegetables, chicken skewers and salad with a citrus vinaigrette.

Winemaking Notes
The distinct pile of stones in our Tufford Road Vineyard marks a mature block of Pinot Gris vines planted over thirty years ago. Each year the pile gets a little bigger, as the stones make their way to the surface through the well-drained sandy loam soil and are collected by hand. The low-yielding vines in this block are meticulously tended, resulting in a wine full of character with exceptional concentration and mouthfeel. After a short period of time on the skins and a gentle press cycle, the Pinot Gris was then transferred into neutral oak barrels, where it was fermented and aged on its lees prior to bottling.
