GAIL Morning Sun Pinot Grigio 2019

Description

Wrapped around the cool, western slopes of Sonoma Mountain, Morning Sun Ranch was once planted to nothing but Italian varietals. Weathered signs still dot the rows where Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Freisa were once farmed exclusively for the Sebastiani Family. Most of the vineyard has been grafted over to more popular varietals like Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, but a terraced parcel of Pinot Grigio and a few long rows of Barbera still remain. Soils a top this idyllic hillside vineyard are primarily volcanic ash. Early ripening Pinot Grigio vines face the Northern end of Bennet Valley, ironically basking in the warm afternoon sun, while late-ripening Barbera faces east towards the village of Glen Ellen

Harvested at 22.7 brix, the wine was whole-cluster pressed into 100% neutral oak barrels and fermented using native yeasts. We stirred each barrel daily until the wine was dry. After 8 months on the lees, we bottled the wine unfiltered. The end result is a dry white wine armed with spicy florals, plush texture and bright natural acidity. Inspired by the dry white wines of the Friuli region in Northern Italy, we believe this is arguably one of the cleanest expressions of Pinot Grigio from the New World. The barrels chosen for this wine were originally produced for our Doris label, so to say this wine has exceeded our expectations would be an understatement. Each bottle is hand-numbered.
