Pinot Gris/Pinot Grigio

750 ML


Product Description

Tropical aromas of papaya combine with lemongrass and almond to form the wines delightful bouquet. In the mouth, fresh fruit flavors are followed by crisp acidity balanced by a touch of natural sweetness. Winemaker Notes: The 2009 Kenwood Vineyards Pinot Gris exhibits the fruity aroma and fresh taste for which Pinot Gris is famous. A direct descendant of the classic red variety Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris prefers cool climates such as the Russian River to produce its best fruit. The grapes were harvested on a cool morning in late September and quickly brought to the winery to be gently pressed. After settling, the juice was coldfermented in stainless steel tanks to showcase the natural acidity and fruit flavor of the wine. The resulting bottle is well-balanced with excellent flavor and a long finish. Food Recommendations: The subtle fruit character and acidity of Pinot Gris make it an excellent aperitif, or as an accompaniment to a variety of dishes. Try pairing it with fruit or vegetable courses, fresh fish or savory roasted poultry dishes.
