Gnarly Head Pinot Grigio Lodi 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Gnarly Head Wines are crafted with California's spirit of fun and adventure - each sip plunges the palate into luscious, concentrated fruit flavor and unexpected spice notes. Our Gnarly grapes come from some of the finest vineyards in Northern California, but you don't need to put on your best finery to drink these wines. Try a glass of Gnarly wine on the beach after a day of surfing, with friends at a picnic, at a family dinner, after summiting a mountain, with popcorn and a movie, to celebrate sealing the big deal, with candlelight and roses at dinner for two, while reflecting on the day, to wash down those sticky, spicy, barbecued ribs.

Gnarly Head Cellars:
A passion for Zinfandel and a desire to make great Zin, led our winemaking team to Lodi, California's zinfamous appellation.

A passion for Zinfandel and a desire to make great Zin, led our winemaking team to Lodi, California's zinfamous appellation. But it was a sense of fun - wine should be fun, accessible, easy to understand and enjoy - that led us to create Gnarly Head Old Vine Zin. The sight of the free standing "head trained" vines found in older vineyards in California was the inspiration for Gnarly Head Old Vine Zin. These 35 to 80 year old vines have twisted old trunks and branches that spread out in all directions sprouting leaves like unruly umbrellas - truly gnarly heads. The grapes these old vines produce are small and few, but offer big flavor! But Zinfandel is not the only California grape that can be Gnarly. Our winemaking team selects grapes from some of the best vineyards in Northern California for our Gnarly Head Chardonnay, Merlot and Cab (Cabernet Sauvignon). Gnarly Head wines are easy to drink and pair with food, and made to bring people together, to enjoy with laughter, to celebrate past escapades and future adventures. Cheers! Read less

Boldly fruit-driven, with bright flavors and zesty acidity. It s a refreshing, mouthwatering wine with bright acidity and mineral notes, the perfect sipper for every occasion. Gnarly Pinot Grigio offers aromas and flavors of citrus blossom and honeysuckle, followed by Meyer lemon, honeydew and white nectarine. Pop open a bottle Gnarly Pinot Grigio rocks on its own or with hot and spicy Asian dishes. Kung Pao!

Pinot Grigio is one gnarly white wine. Zesty, fresh and floral, the wine opens up with intense flavors of honeysuckle, tangerine and apricot, followed by a lively dash of ginger spice. Gnarly Head Pinot Grigio is a refreshing, mouth-watering wine with bright acidity and mineral notes that will stand alone as a delightful apéritif and pairs beautifully with spicy Asian cuisine and seafood. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
