Our First Sparkling Pinot Gris is done in a Brut Style. This is a dry Pinot Gris which would be elegant enough for a Sunday Brunch. Not much of a Brut style fan of Sparkling Wines, try adding some orange juice to make a Mimosa. Super yummy!
Sparkling Pinot Gris
Cloud Rest Vineyard, Sheppard Vineyard, and Dion Vineyard
The Oak Knoll style of Pinot Gris emphasizes the grape’s delicate fruit aromas and flavors, and strives for a balance of creamy texture, good palate weight, and a crisp, lingering finish. In order to achieve this style, we eschew the use of oak and malolactic fermentation finding these influences too obtrusive. Instead, we rely on the natural interaction between the wine and its yeast lees to accentuate the fruit’s natural richness and add texture, depth, and complexity. The finished wine exhibits the grape’s distinct varietal character (melon, pear, and apple) with a finely tuned balance of acidity to fruit intensity.
