Edna Valley Vineyard Pinot Gris 2003
Pinot Gris/Grigio from California
The wine's subtle floral nose mixes with sweet citrus tones and hints of pineapple and green apple. Aging the wine for four months in neutral French barrels impart a round, elegant and enduring mouth feel. The taste evolves on the palate with a finish reminiscent of pears and caramel.
This is a perfect wine for picnics, grilled food and spicy appetizers. Try it with grilled swordfish in a ginger chutney sauce or roasted White Sea bass with a Thai coconut glaze.
Located just four miles from the Pacific Ocean near San Luis Obispo, Edna Valley Vineyard benefits from the coolest and longest growing season in California. The valley’s east-west orientation funnels afternoon sea breezes so the grapes slowly ripen on the vine. This prolonged hangtime allows the grapes to develop generous flavors and outstanding balance. Predominantly sandstone and shale-derived soils contribute mineral nuances to the lush, layered fruit of Edna Valley Vineyard Chardonnay.
