Spicy on the nose with a touch of wood helping to frame the core of heirloom apple fruit and stony minerality. Relatively big and fruity in the mouth, this offers a lovely sweet/bitter counterpoint in the mouth with fine depth to the slightly creamy flavors of green apples and pears that dominate the palate along with a vein of jammy berry fruit, almost strawberry. Bright acids drive the moderately long apricotty finish. 86pts

Soft and very peachy - really clear flavors of peach. A very coppery hue. Soft and round with very delicate and soft fruits. Very nice finish thats slightly sweet. Paired very well with prosciutto.

Terrifically tangy, delivering a white peach, citrus and mango core of ripe fruit, a supersmooth texture and wonderfully juicy acidity, finishing with a note of lemongrass. Drink now. 4,000 cases made. -MW Wine Spectator. A Pinot Gris wine from California in USA. 2009 Terlato Pinot Grigio 750ml

Light onion skin color with ripe peach, apricot, citrus fruits and honeysuckle on the nose. It is lively and fresh with flavors of granny smith apple, stone fruits, and a core of minerality, a mouthfilling texture, and a mouthwatering crisp, clean finish.

Break out the hors d'oeuvres for this tart young Pinot Grigio. It needs food to balance it out. The acid-backed flavors are savory, and include Meyer lemons, limes, lemongrass and sweet butter. Try with delicious little fish and pork appetizers baked... Wine Enthusiast. A Pinot Gris wine from California in USA. 2007 Terlato Pinot Grigio 375ml

This vintage suggests that the Russian River Valley can produce Pinot Grigio every bit as glorious as its famous Pinot Noirs. The fruit comes from two vineyards in the Russian River Valley. The grapes were hand harvested and delivered to the winery in half-ton picking bins in the cooler mornings in order to maximize the grapes' integrityColorPale gold AromaMelon, orange blossom, and spicy TasteLively and fresh with a dense midpalate. Crisp with a lingering finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Pinot Grigio is grown in the Russian River Valley and it is no surprise that Pinot Grigio finds such beautiful expression in this valley, well known for its top quality Pinot Noir. Pinot Grigio actually resembles Pinot Noir until veraison, and being a natural genetic mutation, has all the intrigue, complexity and flavor interest of Pinot Noir. When allowed to fully ripen, Pinot Grigio grapes have a unique copper color revealed through the slight onion skin color of our wine. This vintage suggests that the Russian River Valley can produce Pinot Grigio every bit as glorious as its famous Pinot Noirs. Length/Type of Fermentation: Whole-cluster pressed, racked after cold settling. 65% of the wine was tank fermented at cooler temperatures, 35% barrel fermented in neutral French oak. Length/Type of Aging: Aged 6 months in stainless steel tank and neutral French oak barrels to preserve the fresh fruit and mineral aromas and flavors.
