This bright white wine boasts lemon blossom, jasmine, tropical fruit, honeysuckle and white peach aromas, followed by luscious flavors of nectarine, lemon and honeydew melon wrapping up with a clean, refreshing finish. Crisp fruit and zesty acidity make this medium-bodied wine a perfect aperitif or pair for spicy ginger port, grilled seafood kebabs or spinach salad with warm bacon vinaigrette.
Fruit for the Gnarly Head Pinot Grigio was harvested in the cool hours of the night, delivered to the winery and immediately pressed into fermenters. The subsequent juice was cold-settled and racked clean. Fermentation began and proceeded at low temperatures in a controlled and steady manner, which maximized the spectacular fruit and floral aromas that a perfectly righteous Pinot Grigio can produce. Aged entirely in stainless steel, this Pinot Grigio embodies the essence of bold, crisp California wine.
