Similar to Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris is a mutation of Pinot Noir and often referred to as Pinot Grigio. The greyish colored grape originated from the vineyards of Burgundy and our climate and terroir suit the grape well. Anderson Valley has 49 acres planted to it.
Stylistically this grape tends to be brighter, with ripe fruit notes, citrus, and herbaceous aromatics. On the palate, the wine often has saline-like minerality, and fruits range from tropical, citrus, and stone fruits. Producers can choose to ferment this wine on the lees and in barrel, enhancing the weight of the wine.
