The FEL 2017 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. Aromatics of orange blossom and verbena leap from the glass as well as notes of quince, struck flint, and Asian pear. The palate is creamy and rich with flavors of white grapefruit, apricot, and mandarin orange. This is a perfect wine for pairing with spicy Asian street foods or delicate seafood.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
This wine was made from a blend of fruit from two vineyards located in the “Deep-End” of the Valley near the town of Navarro. Wiley and Klindt Vineyards’ close proximity to the Pacific Ocean lend bright citrus flavors and refreshing acidity to this delicious wine.
Production Notes
The fruit was harvested September 8th and 13th at an average of 23.8° 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 (35%), and in a 900-gallon French oak oval tank (65%).
