Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Drizzle is produced in an off-dry style (1.5% residual sugar). From Red Mountain’s Ciel du Cheval vineyard, this vintage of Drizzle is light greyish gold colored, with intriguing aromas of bosc pear, granny smith apple, honeydew melon, kiwi, key lime, apple blossoms, lemongrass and wet stone. The flavors have notes of grape and pear skins, celery stick and saline minerals. The back picks up calvados and pêche liqueurs and lime zest, followed by a slightly honeyed finish that is counterpointed by vivid fruit acids.

Production Notes
Brix (% sugar) at harvest was 22.3%. The grapes were loaded into a pneumatic bladder press where the grapes were pressed “whole cluster” (they were not crushed or destemmed prior to pressing). After about two hours of gentle pressing, the Pinot Gris juice was transferred to settling tanks for several days. We then transferred the settled juice to stainless steel tanks for a 4-week cool fermentation. After heat and cold stabilization, Drizzle was cross-flow filtered and bottled in April 2018.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy slightly chilled with Asian food, sushi, roasted chicken, turkey, cheese and crackers or with summer sun and great company
