Crafted around a sophisticated foundation of bright acidity and sleek minerality, the 2017 Goldeneye Vin Gris offers lovely aromas of citrus and wet slate. Decadent flavors of candied strawberry glide across the palate adding depth to this voluptuous Vin Gris before concluding with a long, elegant finish.
The 2017 season began with plentiful rains that resulted in healthy vines and an excellent crop. After ideal temperate weather throughout the summer, a significant September heat spell ushered in a brisk start to harvest. A return to normal temperatures, combined with thoughtful irrigation, slowed the pace and allowed us to continue picking each site at optimal levels of ripeness. The grapes arrived at our winery in exceptional condition, resulting in complex wines that embody the rustic elegance of great Anderson Valley winemaking.
