Grovetown Pinot Gris

Comments
Once harvested, the grapes were gently pressed and settled in tank. The warm fermentation started with a handful of selected yeast strains. To add complexity and texture, a portion of the wine was fermented in old French oak barriques. After the completion of fermentation the wine was left to relax on light yeast lees to enhance structure and mouthfeel. The wine was lightly fined in August, then bottled in September.
