WINEMAKING NOTES
Our Pinot Gris is made from 100% grapes from Casanel Vineyards. After hand-harvesting and sorting in the vineyard, our grapes were gently transported into small lugs and were stored for one night in a cold room. The day after, the grapes were sorted again on a sorting table before pressing. Cold-settling occurred for two days, followed by alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tank. Toward the middle of the alcoholic fermentation 50% of the juice was transferred to American oak barrels for aging, to provide a fuller body and unique aroma. In June, we proceeded to protein stabilize before hand-bottling on the Estate.

TASTING & PAIRING NOTES
Tropical fruits – melon – pear – vanilla – toast – coconut – ginger
Asian cuisine – seafood – goes well with lighter proteins (chicken, pork) – salad – charcuterie and hard cheeses
