BOE’s Pinot Gris leans into the Alsatian style, as communicated by calling it Gris rather than Grigio. Full-bodied and driven by stone fruits, melon, blossom, and baking spices, our Pinot Gris is golden in color and rich on the palate. It is not at all the citrus-flavor-water that is sadly exported to the U.S. This is Pinot Gris the way it was meant to be! Food-friendly acidity, with notes of Bosc pear, key lime, plantain, cantaloupe, almonds, and cinnamon. It finishes with honeysuckle and lingering zest.
100% Pinot Gris
Stainless steel fermented at cool temperatures, with brief in-tank stirring on the lees. Allowed to rest in stainless steel tank until ready for bottling. No malolactic fermentaion to retain crisp, mineral driven flavors.
Pinot Gris makes a great aperitif or dinner wine, as it is extremely food friendly. Poultry, pork dishes, scallops, Asian dishes, soft cheeses, salads, and general lighter fare make great matches.
