Brassfield Estate Pinot Grigio, Estate Vineyard

Brassfield Estate Pinot Grigio, Estate Vineyard Wine Details
Price: $14.99 per bottle

Description: A long cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks was used to emphasize the bright, crisp mineral qualities of the wine. The result, tropical aromas of mangoes, pineapple, passion fruit, guava, banana, and a touch of vanilla and coconut burst from the glass. This wine has a soft entry with a light mineral component and is followed by crisp acidity and a soft refreshing finish. Delicious with fresh seafood, or seared scallops over a bed of pasta. Tasting notes: Aromas of pineapple, coconut, mango and a touch of Meyer lemon. There is a mineral quality to the nose and on the palate giving this wine an impression of brightness, and the firm acid backbone balances this classic varietal with a crisp clean finish. Serve with fresh seafood oysters on the half shell, Dungeness crab, or with seared scallops over a bed of pasta.
