2010 Napa Valley Pinot Gris

by David on May 16, 2011

Pinot Gris bottleThese grapes are grown on the sustainably farmed Nord Family property located in the cooler climate of Southern Napa. Pinot Gris is typically admired for its weight and relatively low acidity. Winemaker, Geoff Gorsuch employed a cold fermentation process, which also assisted in producing a dry wine with nice acidic balance.

Flavor profile: Stone fruit, crisp pear, red apple, grapefruit and pineapple with a clean, crisp finish.
2010 Vintage: A roller-coaster of a growing season requiring great patience, but yielding low quantities of outstanding fruit quality.

Drink now and through: 2013

Food Suggestions
This is a versatile wine, so enjoy it with everything from seafood, fish, and pasta with white wine sauce. From Colleen’s recipe collection we recommend Spaghetti and White Clam Sauce.
