Lemelson Vineyards Tikka’s Run Pinot Gris 2015
Tikka’s Run Pinot gris is sourced from Wascher Vineyard, a lower elevation site and Chestnut Hill Vineyard, a higher elevation site. Both sites have very different microclimates and soil types which makes for unique growing conditions and distinctive wine characteristics.
This wine has bright pear, peach and melon notes that go into a long, mineral and citrus-driven finish. A good fraction of this wine was barrel fermented, which rounds out the richness of the wine and brings it into balance with the it’s crisp, acidic backbone.
