Balletto Pinot Gris

Balletto Pinot Gris Wine Details
Price: $12.00 per bottle

Description: This is the third vintage of Pinot Grigio for our winery. As grape growers first, we strongly feel that with good grapes comes good wine. It all starts in the field. The grapes for this vintage were grown on the Balletto family’s home ranch in the hills of Sebastopol. With the help of consulting wine maker Dan Cederquist, we feel we have once again produced an excellent representation of Sonoma Coast Pinot Grigio. This beautiful light straw colored wine has aromas of green apples, cinnamon and tropical notes of star fruit & mango with hints of cream & oak. The flavors are that of crisp green apples and lemon cream with a subtle hint of spice, slight mineral flavor and long unctuous finish.

Varietal Definition
Pinot Grigio/Gris:
Pinkish-white variety producing a very crisp white wine. Grown in Oregon, the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, and more and more in California, it shows promise for other cool climates. Also known as Tokay d'Alsace in France, Rulander in Germany, and Pinot Grigio in Italy.
