Elevated acidity and a mineral core balance the rich fruit flavors of white peach, honeysuckle, vanilla and baking spice. A blend of aromatic Viognier, fermented in new French oak barrels, and fruity Pinot Gris, a varietal not commonly found in the South of France, combine to make a unique wine that deserves an exceptional meal, perhaps of butter-poached lobster, herb-roasted chicken, or roasted pork loin with stone fruit.

Pinot Grigio is genetic mutation of Pinot Noir. The grapes on the vine even look similar, and Pinot Grigio starts out as a purple-hued wine – it becomes a white wine later in the process, as the color is filtered out not long before bottling.
