  • Winemaker's Notes

    The Cristom Pinot Gris is fermented in stainless steel tanks and does not spend any time in oak barrels. It has a certain creaminess that comes from the several months that the wine spends on it lees. Typically, the wine has bright citrus-blossom aromas that range from tangerine zest to lime blossom. Apple, pear and melon are the fruit flavors that are often noted on the palate. This is a bright and lively wine that offers a broad flavor profile. It has a very natural affinity with food.

    Critical Acclaim

    91 Points Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "Light bright straw. Zesty, mineral-tinged citrus fruits and white flowers on the nose, lifted by a spicy gingery element. Taut and nervy in style, offering tightly focused lemon and green apple flavors that slowly flesh out with air. Shows very good energy and stony cut on the finish, which hangs on with strong, spicy tenacity."
