VINTAGE
We had a wet start to 2017, so welcome after 5 years of drought. The bulk of the rain fell in January and February but rains continued into April, ensuring that the vines would have ample water throughout the growing season. The harvest started more or less on time with average to slightly low yields. What started in water ended in fire.  Fortunately we had harvested most of our fruit before the October fires. We will not be using any fruit harvested after the fires.

WINEMAKING
The fruit for this wine was grown in the Oak Knoll District, just north of the city of Napa, where the temperatures are notably cooler than at our Estate St. Helena Vineyard. The moderate weather helps heighten the rich aromatics of Pinot Grigio, while retaining a bright acidity that provides a clean and refreshing finish.  

TASTING NOTES
Gorgeous aromas of stone fruit and flowers such as jasmine and Meyer lemon are matched with flavors of apricot and white peach, juicyfruit, star fruit, and a hint of grapefruit zest.  Juicy and bright, the wine has a lovely texture and pleasantly lingers on the palate.

PAIRINGS
Enjoy with delicate white fish such as halibut, saltimbocca, lemon chicken piccata or anything with Hollandaise sauce as well as a tangy goat cheese, taleggio, burrato or fresh mozzarella.
