2022 Jolie Laide Pinot Gris, California (750ml)
About the Icons
Scott at Jolie-Laide is one of these producers in California and elswehere making Pinot Gris - AKA Pinot Grigio - with more complexity and texture than the typical mass marketed bottling. And let's be honest - there is a lot of Pinot Grigio out there that is insipid at best. Jolie-Laide's starts, of course, with carefully selected vineyard sites, but also is derived from picking decisions and some skin contact during the winemaking process. We are all the beficiaries of these decisions when enjoying a glass. . .
Producer notes ~ "Not your typical Pinot Gris; its beautiful pink hue comes from gently crushing the grapes by foot and a few day cold soak prior to an all wild ferment. Grapes are sourced from two very unique but different vineyards in California that we are lucky to work with. Wildly perfumed of charentias melon, stone fruit, bergamot, crisp cantaloupe with refined texture on the palate. 12% Alc"
