Shady Lane Pinot Gris, Hennessy Vineyard, 2019

Style:  Light-body White          Vintage: 2019            ABV: 11.8%

Appellation: Leelanau Peninsula             

Region: Michigan                        County:  United States

We celebrate this vintage with the sun kissed season of 2019. The growing season was warm and dry on the southerly facing slope at Hennessy Vineyard, where harvest took place on October 4th. Over 13 days the wine was fermented to dry and then aged in stainless steel for seven months prior to bottling.

The Pinot Gris is anchored in aromas and flavors of chamomile, pear and green melon. The weight of the mid palate carries hints of almond to a finish of saline minerality. Perfect for summer; think fresh when pairing with food.
