Fossil & Fawn Pinot Gris Rouge Willamette Valley 2021
100% Pinot Gris
Williamette Valley, Oregon, United States
This Pinot Gris is made as a light red wine and crafted in a very similar way to their Pinot Noir. The fruit was sourced from No Clos Radio and Silvershot Vineyard - both own-rooted, organically farmed vineyards with vines ranging in age from 21-47 years. Most of the fruit was destemmed, with roughly 30% of the lot being whole cluster fermented. The average length of maceration was 14 days on skins before being pressed into a mix of neutral French and Oregon oak. The wine matured for nine months before being racked once and was bottled unfined/unfiltered.
