Francis Ford Coppola Pinot Grigio California Bianco 2009
Grown in the cool climate of Monterey County, ideal conditions for this delicate grape, our Pinot Grigio is delightfully refreshing. The grapes are picked in the early morning and fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures, bringing out top notes of apricots and tangerines, followed by flavors of pear, green apple and grapefruit with underlying mineral accents.

A fresh, lively expression of stone fruit, white peach, honeydew melon, floral and mineral notes. Full-bodied, supple and creamy, ending with a dash of nutmeg. Drink now through 2014.
This statewide blend stands up well against far more expensive Chardonnays. Itrsquo;s rich and crisp in acidity, with tropical fruit, pear and peach flavors, as well as a generous coating of oak and buttercream. Easy to find, with nearly 11,000 cases produced.
