GREGGARIOUS 2018 Pinot Gris, Carneros, Sonoma

Complementary ground shipping on 3 or more bottles * USE CODE VINO
WHY WE LOVE IT:
  • Silver Medal - American Fine Wine Rose Competition
  • Certified Sustainably and ecocentric farmed ranch
  • Dry Pinot gris with the aromas of citrus flowers and flavors of ruby red grapefruit
  • A versatile wine with excellent minerality, pairs well with food, and is great on its own

WINEMAKER:  Jacqueline Yoakum Consulting Winemaker - Italics, Magnus. Alumni of Schramsberg, Keller, Stags Leap Wine Cellars, Littorai. 

WHAT WE TASTED:

Aromas of heirloom citrus – ruby red grapefruit, orange, lime and Meyer’s lemon – along with floral, while minerality keeps it brisk. So great with food. With cave fermentation, the acidity for this vintage is a bit lower than usual for a real nice, lighter touch and lower alcohol for full enjoyment  

AVA DESIGNATED: Carneros, Sonoma County

WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Asparagus Risotto
  • Roasted chicken breast with preserved lemon and French thyme
  • Sushi, just about any
  • Louie Salad with Dungeness crab, vegetables and homemade dressing

PERSONALITY: Look a little closer on the label. The pooch drawing is made up of wine terms. Very clever those Gregg's - Kristina and Steve. And Guinness and Chase, who grace the labels.

TECHNICAL:

  • fermented in a chilled tank in the Italics Winery cave
  • 12.5% abv 
  • low 3% Ph, like Champagne 
  • 2018 vintage
