2018 The Louie Pinot Gris

Named for Sue-Ann's Great-great Uncle Lewis, this wine is weighty and round...the exact opposite of Louie! 

A sleek, full-bodied Gris, with notes of warm vanilla and poached pear on the nose. In the mouth, the wine is round, smooth and weighty, with suggestions of baked apples, spice, and a hint of citrus zest. Outstanding on its own, but even better with cheese & charcuterie, roast poultry or pork, or the classic Alsatian-style flammekueche (bacon and onion flatbread). 

100% estate grown fruit from the Staff vineyards, located in the Vinemount Ridge sub-appellation. Hand-picked and whole cluster pressed in a one-ton basket press before fermentation and aging in French and American oak. 

 Alc 13%     RS 7.4 g/l 


 Powerful honeyed orchard fruit, spice and toasty vanilla oak nose and palate. Weighty finish. ~ 2020 Decanter World Wine Awards
