About This Wine:
The challenge comes from the proximity to the Pacific Ocean, which provides for one of the coolest climates in the Golden State for grape growing. That means that each growing season could provide a potential struggle to attain optimal ripeness in the grapes. The flip side is that longer “hang time” can result in grapes and wines with extremely concentrated flavors.
The 2019 Chalkstone Pinot Gris was made from grapes grown in vineyards that are sustainably farmed, with environmental stewardship considered every bit as important as producing perfectly ripened fruit. Not surprisingly, the methods and the results go hand in hand, with honors bestowed by both Earth-focused organizations and wine judges.
Perfectly balanced, delicately fruitful and easy drinking, this is a wine that mimics its place of origin: wonderful (to drink) and challenging (to put down).
