  • Regular price $29.99

My Aurosa is an uncommon treatment of Pinot Gris.  We employ considerably more sun exposure to the clusters than typical white wine production. The goal is to increase skin thickness, tannin levels, and aromatic compounds.  Conversely, the yields are elevated to increase acidity, repress sugars, and lengthen hang time.  This allows a full spectrum of flavors and textural development without losing the framework if minerality and acidity.

Aurosa showcases light hibiscus and wild rose hip tea tannins.  Wisps of lavender, violets and tea rose intermingle with almond and bergamot flower over a base of citrus, river stone and steel.  a layered texture compliments the dancing lacework of this intriguing Pinot Gris.
