The 2013 Pinot Gris is one of our all time favorite renditions of this varietal. It is a midway point between the typical Pinot Gris that are super fruity and floral and the more austere Pinot Grigio of Northern Italy. Shy on the nose, it opens to a dry medium bodied wine with hints of peach, a definite current of minerality, and a long fresh finish.
J Wrigley also produces a very inviting rose of Pinot Noir and will soon release Mae’s Riesling, named for John’s grandmother. Chardonnay is in the works. We predict there are some exciting, well made wines to come from this relatively young winery and their interesting mix of terroir. Click here for purchasing information.
