Sulfur, smells like fire and brimstone. A bit soft in the mouth with indistinct flavors, medium body and some incipient sweetness on the back end. The acidity and sulfur return, eliminating the finish and allowing the alcohol to burn through. 70pts

Wow, I just had this wine ... did GDP taste a different wine? Sulfur? Fire? Brimstone? Incipient sweetness? Hmmmmm ... let me taste this again ... nope ... none of that at all. Crisp, ripe acidity, tree fruit -- apple, pear, and nectarine ... fresh, clean finish ... very impressive wine. Let me sip this one more time ... nope still not getting what you got. Lovely wine!


Winemaker's Notes:

The hand harvested fruit was immediately whole cluster - pressed into stainless steel tanks and allowed to cold settle for 48 hours. Fermentation was conducted in a combination of stainless steel tanks and neutral oak barrels. Afterwards, the young wine was held on the lees and stirred regularly to add complexity and texture.

Tasting Notes:

The 2010 Manzoni Pinot Gris has lovely aromas of mandarin orange, brioche, and apple that are lifted out of the glass by ripe acidity. In the mouth, the texture given by the lees stirring and extended aging is unctuous and mouth filling. The flavors on the palate are rich and more akin to the wines of Alsace than typical North American or Italian Pinot Gris. Apple, pear and citrusy notes blend nicely and the bright acidity keeps the wine clean and fresh on the finish.
