Channing Daughters Pinot Grigio Technical Data
We always love offering a new vintage of Pinot Grigio as it defies the usual expectations of the grape. Our 2015 Pinot Grigio is alive with aromas and flavors of tree-ripe peaches (yellow and white), golden and red apples, pears, white flowers, spice, a touch of honey and what is becoming a tell-tale note in our whites; a salty, chalky minerality. This lovely dry white wine is clean, alluring and focused with loads of personality and a silken mouthfeel. We have often said that Pinot Grigio gets a bad rap from the thin, dilute industrial examples and we are proud to enlighten the naysayer's with a Pinot Grigio of superior character. For our 2015 version all the fruit was hand-harvested, whole cluster-pressed, fermented in stainless steel barrels (64%) and older/neutral oak barrels and hogsheads (36%). The wine was handled minimally and bottled by gravity (after ten months on its lees) on July 14th, 2016.
