Vineyard Notes
A cooler than average growing season meant that our Pinot Gris came in about 10 days later than normal. A combination of machine harvesting and hand picking was used to get the fruit to the winery.
Winemaker Notes
Approximately one-third of the Pinot Gris was aged in stainless steel barrels, with the remaining two-thirds going into stainless steel tanks. The stainless steel barrels allow the Pinot Gris to have sur lees contact without any oak influence. In mid-December, after fermentation, the wine in the stainless steel tanks and stainless steel barrels were blended together prior to bottling in March 2011.
Food Pairing Notes
The lively acidity of this wine makes it very food friendly. Try it with Indian dishes, fresh summer salads, and spot prawns. While at Miradoro try it with the margherita pizza or marinated beet and hazelnut salad.
