2017 Pinot Gris
What we love
Merisi co-owner and winemaker Mandy Heldt Donovan is making tiny amounts of delicious, balanced, honest expressions of Pinot Gris, seeking to highlight the underrated potential of this varietal. Fruit for the 2017 Pinot Gris comes from Los Carneros, is picked early for freshness, aged in neutral oak, and vinified bone dry. Aromatic notes of citrus and dried herbs lead to a complex palate stacked with grapefruit and pineapple flavors. Only 90 cases produced!
