2015 Vivace Pinot Grigio

2015 Vivace Pinot Grigio

We celebrate the fact that we make wine in a region where vintage variations play an important role. A typical growing seasons are a nightmare for commercial wineries interested in making consistent but boring wines. For us however it defines our interest in wine. We look forward to seeing what Mother Nature gives us to work with each year. It is the effects of each vintage on the finished wine that urges us to start verticals of our favorite wines then follow their evolution and discuss their merits at tastings with friends.

Our 2015 Pinot Grigio hails from a warm growing season, but early picking and selection from cooler micro cliamtes have given us a wine that is lively and chiseled. Vivace greets you on the nose with a very expressive note of Asian pear, desert vegetation (sage) and lime zest. The palate is packed with fruit cocktail flavours that enter the mouth in a juicy and round fashion before they blossom into bright citrus and tart apple notes. The long finish carries on with intense citrus rind notes. A grigio on steroids.
