2010 Pinot Gris
Gapsted Limited Release 2010 Pinot Gris
Vineyard Region: King Valley
The grapes for our Pinot Gris were sourced from vineyards in the King Valley. The region is renowned for the heritage of its Italian farmers and it is perhaps fitting we have made our Pinot Gris in this refreshing Italian style. Our one concession to this style was to pick the fruit riper than its Italian counterparts providing a richer creamier palate balanced by the crisp acidity of this variety. It is a wine that will age well for several years, but is drinking well now as a vibrant youth.
