Our Vin Gris is a medium-bodied, salmon-hued wine made from the white juice of black grapes. It was fermented to near dryness and then allowed to mature for six months in seasoned French oak barrels. This wine combines the best of two worlds: The crisp verve of white Pinot with the textured mouth feel and berrylike flavors of a red.
A rosé by any other name? This Vin Gris is meant to be a stand-alone white Pinot Noir with structured fruit, an off-dry finish, and just a hint of hue. It is made in a much fuller-bodied style than typical rosés having undergone full malolactic fermentation in order to soften the edges and enhance the spicy, creamy texture of the wine.
