Full-bodied, slightly creamy Alsatian style Gris. Apple, white nectarine, peach, honeysuckle and almond aromatics. Clean and balanced. Flavor profile is that of a more ripe fruit; nectarine, honeysuckle, ripe apple compared to that of a grigio which has a more citrus profile, green apple, spice and minerality. Our acid levels are a little higher for an Alsatian style, but the pH is a bit higher which adds to its medium body and along with the palate it more truly emulates a Gris style.
The vineyard is surrounded by a wooded lot within the Leelanau Peninsula AVA. The vineyard is hand-tended using high standard canopy management practices to ensure the highest quality grapes.
Food Pairing Notes
White meat: fish (perch/trout), scallops; Salty veggies: Asparagus; Semi-soft cheese like Grana Padano.
