GREGGARIOUS Pinot Gris, Carneros, Sonoma

Regular price $0.00 $19.00 Sale

WHY WE LOVE IT:
  • Certified Sustainably and ecocentric farmed ranch
  • Dry Pinot gris with the aromas of citrus flowers and flavors of stone fruit and guava
  • 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, jasmine notes. Minerality is coupled with beautiful stone fruits, and tropical guava. With the hot summer and cave fermentation, the acidity for this vintage is a bit lower than last year. 

AVA DESIGNATED: Carneros, Sonoma County

WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Roasted chicken breast with preserved lemon and French thyme
  • Cheese plate of Humboldt Fog Chevre, Fresh Mozzarella and Gruyere
  • Louie Salad with Dungeness crab, vegetables and homemade dressing

  • fermented in a chilled tank in the Italics Winery cave
