2016 La Cruz Pinot Gris
La Cruz Vineyard
Sep. 2, 2016
This highly aromatic white wine is a delight with notes of apricot and jasmine and a long juicy finish. Flavors of white peach, lemon zest and green tea are embraced by a solid mineral mouthfeel that adds a wonderful weight to this wine.
The ancient seabed of the San Pablo Bay is mineral-rich, with clay soils that define La Cruz Vineyard. This site is located in the lower portion of the property and sheltered more from the wind. Typical to this vineyard is a bright acidity and signature spice notes. We have 2 acres planted to Pinot Gris.
