Producer: Fossil and Fawn

Region: Willamette Valley, Oregon

Grapes: 100% Pinot Gris

From the winemaker: "We have been making Pinot gris as a “red wine” before it was cool (~2014). A genetic variant of Pinot noir, yet too-often misunderstood, Pinot gris gets to show off its full potential when macerated on its (pigmented!) skins. We treat it no differently than our Pinot noir in the cellar, getting a full nine months of aging in mostly-neutral barrel. The result is striking: red currant, sandalwood, and a hint of orange peel."
