2016 Pinot Gris, Rorick Heritage Vineyard
Calaveras

The hallmark of this dramatic schist and limestone vineyard at the ascend of the Sierras is a wine with serious cut and drive. Picked at 21.5 brix, crushed by foot for a 3 day whole cluster cold soak adds phenolic texture while lending a beautiful rose Champagne like color. Fermented and aged in a combination of stainless and neutral oak barrique and puncheon. This wine is pure stone and earth. Wildly perfumed of charentias melon, stone fruit, bergamot and kaffir lime leaf. 12% ABV
