Wine Enthusiast 88 points - This new venture of Erica and Kim Crawford has turned out a charming, medium-bodied Pinot Gris that Goldilocks would undoubtedly call, ’just right.’ Mixed stone-fruit flavors end on a citrusy, refreshing note. (Oct 2013)

Wine maker notes
Like its red counterpart, Pinot Gris is a varietal with delicate flavours, but unlike Pinot Noir, it tends to crop heavily. We manage the canopy and the crop carefully to manage vine balance and to get the desired flavours. Five clones have been selected for their various flavours and vine characteristics.
We seek structure for the delicate flavours of Pinot Gris, together with texture and mouth feel. We like to make (technically)dry wine, giving it a bit of time in bottle before release
Any spicy dish, Vietnamese and Cambodian food or by itself. Serve at 45-50°F (7-10°C)
