14 Hands Pinot Grigio 2015

External Review by We Speak Wine:

TASTING NOTES: This crisp, refreshing Pinot Grigio offers aromas of fresh melon and green apple followed by flavors of pear and honeysuckle. Pair this wine with your favorite seafood dish. - Keith Kenison, Winemaker VINTAGE: • The 2015 vintage was one of the warmest growing seasons on record in Washington. • Warm temperatures continued through the spring and summer, moderating slightly into fall and extending an early harvest. • Overall, 2015 saw very favorable growing conditions, producing optimal ripening across varieties and yielding outstanding wines throughout the region. WINEMAKING: • Grapes were picked at around 22 Brix to develop a bright, juicy wine. • The fruit was fed directly to press. After two days of cold settling, the clean juice was racked off solids. • Cool 14-20 day fermentation in stainless steel tanks enhanced this variety’s lively aromatics. RECOMMENDED FOOD PAIRINGS: Fruit salad, gourmet cheeses, grilled fish and seafood pasta. Blend: 99% Pinot Grigio 1% Pinot Blanc Alcohol: 13.0% Total Acidity: 0.55g/100ml pH: 3.30
