Puppies & Pinot 4-Pack
Whole cluster pressed, native yeast. 60% Mariah vyds, 40% Docker Hill. This was Andy's first year using Mariah Pinot Noir fruit. Not all the Mendocino Ridge vineyards like Mariah do well is because they’re very windy. Even though this vineyard is on the top of the ridge, it’s a little ‘bowl’ that doesn’t get the wind. Brilliant salmon color, savory in the nose. More of a rosé nose - more like Provencal; sage brush, rainier cherry, mouth is very sweet tart… Very approachable.
Filigreen Farm is a biodynamic farm in the heart of the Anderson Valley that not only produces some of the best Pinot Gris grapes in California, but the best produce, olive oil, nuts, and other delicious treats from Mother Nature. Ali and Andy coax the herbal and minty character out of this wine so rarely found in Pinot Gris, but don’t skimp on the viscosity and richness that make Anderson Valley the bees knees for Alsatian varietals. Close your eyes… Think of green… orange… tea leaves… papaya…. basil. Andy says you can age this for another 4-5 years. Pair with antipasto, poached or grilled chicken and fish, mussels, salad, salmon, scallops, mildly spicy food and veggies.
