Alexana Pinot Gris 2015
The 2015 Pinot Gris was stirred on the lees for two weeks, prior to being pressed whole cluster. This begins with aromatics reminiscent of nutmeg, poached pear, starfruit and hints of nectarine. The mouthfeel is plush and yields a wonderful minerality, leading to bright flavors of kiwi, starfruit, cantaloupe, wet stone and suggestions of baked apple. The structure of this wine is absolutely gorgeous and pushes the envelope considering the heat of the vintage. Overall, this is a successful effort from head winemaker Brian Weil and his winemaking team on this impressive wine. Aromas of fig, bubblegum and red apple. Rich and rounded on the palate with melon and citrus notes.
