The FEL 2016 Anderson Valley Pinot Gris is a lovely expression of Anderson Valley’s cool-climate terroir, simultaneously rich and unctuous but with a tremendous brightness and refreshing acidity. Aromas of Asian pear, quince, and lemon verbena burst from the glass, while the palate is redolent with flavors of grapefruit, apricot, and even hints of olive oil. Texturally, this wine dances between rich and oily, and bright and refreshing. - Ryan Hodgins, Winemaker

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
This wine was made from a blend of fruit from three vineyards. Located in the “Deep-End” of the Valley near the town of Navarro are Wiley and Klindt Vineyards, whose close-proximity to the Pacific Ocean lends bright citrus flavors and refreshing acidity. Donnelly Creek Vineyard, located near the town of Boonville in the warmer end of Anderson Valley, is better protected from the ocean breezes, giving the wine its rich tropical notes.
Production Notes
The fruit was harvested August 24 through September 16 at an average of 24.1° Brix, then whole cluster pressed to tank and settled for 24 hours. The final blend is composed of lots fermented in small neutral French oak barrels with five months of sur lie aging (45%), in a 900 gallon French oak oval tank (40%), and in a stainless steel tank (15%).
