Notes from the Winemaker:
Simply pretty and light on its feet, this classic Pinot Gris offers a solid acid backbone with aromas and flavors of pear, applesauce and stone fruit, with hints of quince, lime and peach blossoms. A touch of spice adds intrigue, leading to a notable, persistent finish.

Winemaking Notes:
We harvested the Pinot Gris into small bins at night and rushed them to our winery in order to retain the freshness and purity of the fruit. After gently pressing the whole clusters, the juice for the 2018 Pinot Gris was transferred to small, 75-gallon stainless steel barrels for fermentation, and then allowed to mature undisturbed for five months sur lie (ageing on the lees), enhancing the silky texture and mouthfeel, before a very gentle bottling. The wine never touches a sliver of oak, nor does any portion undergo malolactic fermentation. Residual Sugar is modest, at 0.7gms/L.

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - James Suckling:
"A lovely, round and fresh white with pear blossom and tropical fruit. Medium body, round and vivid. Phenolic texture, too. Delicious finish. Drink now." - (5 Feb, 2019)

90 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"Etude's 2017 Pinot Gris Grace Benoist Ranch Estate Grown is a very pretty, open-knit white with lovely textural depth and aromatic brightness. Orchard fruit and floral notes are nicely woven together. Supple and gracious, the 2017 is absolutely delicious. The warm vintage has given the Pinot Gris an extra kick of texture that is quite appealing. The Pinot Gris is often one of the highlights in this range, as it is again in 2017." - Antonio Galloni (Dec 2018)
