Vivacous lighter more refreshing wines may be sparkling, white or rosé, and also may be sweet or dry. However, all are on the brighter and tangier end of the flavor spectrum and will never feature oaky flavors.

FOOD PAIRING: Flattering with almost EVERYTHING, but best for RAW & COLD FOODS, LOW-FAT FOODS & SPICY FOODS.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The 2021 Napa Valley Pinot Gris is from a single vineyard in Yountville with primarily alluvial soils. Pinot Gris is well-suited to cooler climate like the one that exists in Yountville. The cool temperature helps maintain the acid and fruitiness in the grapes to create a balanced wine. The Pinot Gris was fermented in neutral French oak barrels. It was then aged on lees in neutral oak barrels for 11 months.
