Alma Rosa Pinot Gris Santa Barbara County 2004

Member Review by Kate Statton:

This is fruity and sweet and impossibly easy to drink. Even paired well with the spice and heat of Chinese hot and sour soup. I really enjoy Alma Rosa wines.

Pioneer winegrowers in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA since 1970, Thekla and Richard Sanford have left their namesake winery and are pleased to present the wines from their winery, Alma Rosa Winery & Vineyards. With over 38 years experience winegrowing in this region, their energies will continue to be focused on excellence in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and feel this new beginning gives them a greater opportunity to honor the unmistakable relationship between the healthiness of the soil, the energy of the vines, and ultimately the soul of the wine. “For over 20 years, my wife Thekla and I have focused on what’s most important to us: sustainable business practices and organic farming. We are deeply committed to the environment and the soulful connection with our employees and the people who enjoy our wine.” says Richard. With over 100 acres of certified organic estate vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA (the first vineyards to be certified in Santa Barbara County) Alma Rosa Winery offers Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc in addition to their Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Their acclaimed Pinot Noir Vin-Gris (as seen in the movie Sideways) is also available. With a vision for a viable agricultural future and an environment that is safe for our children, Richard and Thekla and the staff at Alma Rosa Winery hope to continue to bring our customers together to share good food, good times and great wine.

Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

I find most Pinot Gris somewhere inf the range of bland-inspid, but this one is crisp with good acidity.
