Alexana Pinot Gris
This Pinot Gris was stirred on the lees for two weeks, prior to being pressed whole cluster. It begins with aromatics reminiscent of nutmeg, poached pear, starfruit and hints of nectarine. The mouthfeel is plush and yields a wonderful minerality, leading to bright flavors of kiwi, starfruit, cantaloupe, wet stone and suggestions of baked apple. The wine structure is gorgeous and pushes the envelope considering the heat of the vintage.
