One of two pinot gris’ Nichol produces each year…Thirty-six hours on skins lend the tint and texture. Finely structured, this precise, 11-degree alcohol white carries a significant impact, through apricot fuzz, grapefruit pith, bergamot, and granitic grip, along with some fine tannic tension thanks to the skin contact. Acidity is bright, streaming this to a lingering, saline finish. This vintage is especially shining, making this smashable wine a joy.
