Jolie Laide Pinot Gris Mere 2021
A new blend of two vineyards; Vista Verde vineyard complimented beautifully with Glen Oaks vineyard that has been a staple in our Pinot Gris for years. Vista Verde vineyard boasts 1000ft elevation with gravelly loam and limestone fracture soils located in the cool valleys and canyons of San Benito County. Picked early to preserve acidity and crushed by foot for a 2 day whole cluster cold soak which adds phenolic texture while lending a beautiful rosé Champagne-like color. Pinot Gris thrives in a mini microclimate at the bottom swath of a 30+ year old Cabernet Sauvignon block, planted as a sort of frost protection. Wildly perfumed of melon, stone fruit, and bergamot.
