At DeLoach Vineyards we strive to produce distinctive wines that spotlight unique terroirs in a socially and environmentally responsible way, practice sustainable viticulture and utilize minimally intrusive winemaking techniques. The grapes for our 2019 Pinot Gris were carefully chosen from cool, fog-influenced vineyards within Sonoma County.
Flavors of apricot, and orange zest coat the palate in this richly flavored wine with undertones of stone fruit and a touch of minerality. Showcasing well-balanced acidity, this light white wine offers a hint of spice on the finish.
The 2019 growing season started off with cooler temperatures which was followed by a moderate summer with fewer heat spikes than normal. Fruit set was consistent and with the milder weather, harvest began a few weeks later compared to the last few years. This longer and near-perfect growing season has resulted in structured and concentrated wines.
