2019 I. Brand & Family "Eden Rift Vineyard" Cienaga Valley Pinot Gris

SKU #1488589 92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark With dynamic and complex expressions like this, it's a wonder why people started stripping the naturally pink hue that Pinot Gris provides. The pinkish orange wine delivers aromas of strawberry sorbet and rosebuds and then opens onto a palate of light raspberry and watermelon. There is ample tannic tension as well. *Editors' Choice* (MK) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

K&L Notes

Pinot Gris sourced from the beautiful Eden Rift vineyard in Cienega Valley. Grown in a mix of decomposed granite and limestone soil, this aromatic variety excels here. Winemaker Ian Brand destems the fruit and then gives it a five day soak on the skins, gently stirring the fermenter once per day. Just as the fermentation kicks off the juice is pressed off the skins and fermented in neutral oak. It's a wonderful, fresh, fragrant wine and the time on skins gives lots of texture and intrigue without being "funky" like many skin fermented whites. It also picks up a lovely pink / orange hue from the skins. (Ryan Woodhouse - K&L Domestic Wine Buyer)
