About This Wine
Wines from California’s San Luis Obispo County benefit from the three C’s — cool, consistent and complex.
The reliable cooling effect of the nearby Pacific Ocean ensures a long growing season, enabling grapes to achieve physiological ripeness and natural balance. The ocean also exerts a moderating effect on the climate, minimizing temperature swings so conditions are rarely too hot or too cold. The result: a steady growing season that fosters balanced ripening and consistent quality.
The San Luis Obispo Coast’s uncommonly complex soils are frequently riddled with ancient sea fossils. Soil variation enables the winegrower to mix and match varietals to specific soil profiles, or to add more “colors” to the palette of a single varietal such as Pinot Gris.
That’s what accounts for the complexity of the 2017 Liberty Station Pinot Gris, which showcases an array of refreshing fruit flavors. The three C’s of San Luis Obispo County combine to give this wine an A-plus.
About Pinot Gris
In northeast Italy it makes a light, crisp and neutral wine. In Alsace it can be a delicately perfumed, honey-flavored wine, either dry or sweet, and with more color than most whites.
