Product Description

“Crisp, bright flavors have always been the hallmark of Adelsheim Pinot Gris. In this 2016, you’ll find aromas of white peach, minerality, and pear blossom. It pulls off the difficult feat of providing a gentle creaminess that lends a rich, mouthfilling texture and long finish, yet is still impressing as a wine that’s crisp and clean.” – From the Winery. Winemaking: Following a light whole-cluster pressing in a computer-controlled membrane press, the juice was allowed to settle for three to five days to allow for clarification prior to fermentation. A variety of cultured yeasts were used for added complexity. The wine underwent a slow, cool fermentation to help retain primary fruit esters. For enhanced textural richness, about 18% was fermented, but not aged, in older, neutral French oak barrels. The wine was aged sur lies in tank for several months to enhance mouthfeel. In order to preserve varietal character the wine did not go through malolactic fermentation.
