2011 Goldeneye Anderson Valley Vin Gris of Pinot Noir
The Goldeneye Vin Gris is crafted from juice drawn from harvested Pinot Noir grapes that is left on the skins for approximately 22 hours, just long enough to provide richness and a hint of color to the wine. The juice extracted for the Vin Gris is immediately cold-fermented to preserve the delicate aromatics and flavors that are essential to a light to medium-bodied rosé wine.
This wine is lush and light, balancing vibrant berry elements, with citrus notes and bright acidity. The aromas are filled with layers of fresh fruit and floral notes, with abundant raspberry, ripe melon, strawberry, rose petal and hints of cranberry. The aromatics are echoed on the palate, along with additional flavors of citrus and red plum, all supported by crisp acidity.
