2020 FEL Pinot Gris, Anderson Valley
Perhaps the most consistent characteristic, vintage to vintage, of our Anderson Valley Pinot Gris are the aromatics and flavors of pear. Each year we have a discussion as to which type of pear the wine most resembles: some years there are warm spicy notes reminiscent of a Bosc, other years the flavor is more delicate like a D’Anjou. In our 2020, there is a tropical almost melon like flavor that recalls Asian pears. Flavors of Mandarin orange and lemon peel add further depth and the wine’s bright acidity leaves a refreshing finish.
