Ross & Bee Maloof - Pinot Gris Thistle Vineyard Dundee Hills 2021
Know what I mean? Peaches and cream. Clear cut pithy citrus flavors, supported by a custardy mouth feel and Jurançon Sec-esque aromatics. A fun and invigorating white with nervy acids that will make you want to set up a kiddy pool in your front yard post-haste. Ooh girl I need it. Fermented in neutral oak barrels and sur lie aged with no bâtonnage for 11 months.
Serve chilled with summertime seafood dishes or white za. Better yet, serve chilled with white za that has seafood on it.
The vineyard was planted in 2000 to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Blanc. The Maloof control the only two blocks of Pinot Gris on the site. The fruit was direct pressed, fermented and aged in neutral Burgundy barrels, and left on the lees for 8 months with no battonage. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. 75 cases produced
