About This Wine:
Erica Myers kept that in mind when crafting Nu Wines’ 2017 Pinot Gris. After all, she had jumped at the chance to work with the Pinot Gris grapes from a small vineyard in the Sonoma Valley that has a reputation for producing stellar wines.
During the 2017 harvest, those grapes, picked at night to preserve freshness, arrived at the winery in perfect condition. It then was up to Myers to make something great out of them. She oversaw a long, slow, gentle pressing process, and after allowing the chilled juice to settle for a few days, initiated fermentation using a strain of yeast from the Alsace region of France.
Pinot Gris has been made in Alsace for more than 400 years, so it was an informed and inspired decision. The result: a rich, delicious wine made with minimal intervention.
