Product Description

Varietal Information: 100% California Pinot Grigio Wine Detail: Alcohol: 13.50% v/v TA: 0.65g/100ml pH: 3.32 RS: 0.60g/100ml Tasting Notes: Our Ménage à Trois Pinot Grigio is the perfect, all-purpose white. Fresh, fruit-forward and oh-sodrinkable, its delicious on its own and wonderfully versatile with food. A wine for all seasons and reasons! Wine Attitude: At the risk of sounding suggestive, we dare you to indulge in a little skinny dipping. Thats right, were asking you to experience the thrill of the naked grape in a glass of our lively Pinot Grigio. With nothing to hide behind, this gorgeous single-varietal wine bares all with bright fruit flavors and an exuberant acidity that makes you want to shout yahoo! and go streaking through the vines. Though were technically breaking the rules of Ménage à Trois by giving all our love to just one grape, we think youll agree that in this case, one sometimes is better than three. (Gasp! Were not becoming monogamous, are we?) Vineyard and Winemaking: Want to get fresh? We thought so, which is why we let our winemakers run wild with our Pinot Grigio. Though technically not a blend of three this wine is most definitely a Ménage à Trois in spirit and style. Erupting with zesty tropical fruit aromas, vivid fruit flavors balanced by mouth-watering acidity, this exhilarating wine is everything you could want and more. To preserve the fresh, bright fruit flavors and zippy aromas, winemakers cold-ferment the wine in stainless steel tanks, completely avoiding malolactic fermentation. We find all of this technical talk a little, well, stimulating, Perhaps its time to sit back and enjoy a glass of our Pinot Grigio and simply let the wine do its thing.
