2016 Pinot Gris, Spanish Springs Vineyard

(made entirely with whole clusters and all stainless steel) Light bright yellow. Ripe pear, Meyer lemon, chamomile and a hint of leesiness on the perfumed nose. Chewy and nicely concentrated, offering pear nectar, lemon pith and smoky mineral flavors that pick up a gingery nuance with aeration. Lingers with very good tenacity on the finish, leaving lively floral and orchard fruit notes behind.
