Handley 2015 Pinot Gris
The fruit for this juicy, mouthwatering Pinot Gris is sourced from the Helluva and Romani Vineyards located at opposite ends of Anderson Valley. We employed a combination of lees stirring in neutral puncheons, along with fermentation in both large wooden ovals and stainless steel resulting in a full mouth-pleasing texture with a focused crisp mineral finish. The aromas encompass both stone fruit and tropical nuances showing nectarine and tangerine, with hints of daffodils and lemongrass. Both apricot and lime zest integrate with fleshy flavors of guava and nectarine resulting in a ripe mouthwatering wine with a dry and punchy finish. It pairs well with potato and pasta salads, ceviche and fish tacos, or seared scallops or shrimp and pasta with cream sauce.
