    Winemaker's Notes:

    In some ways, 2007 was a year of extremes... sub-freezing temperatures in January and only 60% of normal rainfall. Then a warm spring led to early budbreak, bloom and set, and the march towards harvest resumed a more normal pace with cool summer temperatures. Both clusters and berries were smaller than usual, leading to a significant degree of concentration in 2007 wines across the board. This Pinot Grigio was harvested in the cool morning hours under optimal conditions.

    The Swanson Vineyards 2007 Pinot Grigio is a complex, multi-layered wine. Lychee, grapefruit, lemon zest and pear can be found in both the nose and the mouth. The wine lingers on the palate, and evokes the memory of fresh, perfectly ripe Pinot Grigio grapes. The 2007 Pinot Grigio represents the essence of this aromatic grape.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Light and frisky at first, this wine’s smokey flavors gain clarity and freshness with air. It smells like an autumn pear and has the same softness to the fruit, while pleasantly bitter leesiness provides a substantive structure.

    Swanson does a good job of crafting a dry, crisp, mouthwatering Pinot Grigio with little or no oak influence. The acidity is juicy, making the apple, citrus and wildflower flavors savory. Good white with today’s wide range of ethnic fare.
