Early bird special

There are two main styles of dry Pinot Grigio (AKA Pinot Gris): minerally or fruity. The decision of which style to produce determines the harvest regime. Grapes for the dry, minerally style are harvested early when the grape’s acidity is high. The most famous examples are the wines of northern Italy, prized for their high acidity, modest alcohol and minimal fruit. The dry, fruity style requires riper fruit, so the grapes are harvested later in the season. The grapes for this Grigio were harvested early with piquant acidity whereas the grapes for the wine Navarro bottles as Gris were picked up to two weeks later. Harvested on August 28, a record early date, the grapes were destemmed, pressed and the juice chilled, allowing grape solids to settle out, prior to a cool, slow fermentation in seasoned French oak casks. Subtle Asian pear and Meyer lemon flavors, light scents of lemon blossoms and daffodils and a crisp, minerally finish. Double Gold medal winner.
