2012 Pinot Gris - Santa
The Alma Rosa 2012 Pinot Gris is made from cool climate grapes from vineyards in the Santa Maria and Los Alamos Valleys. The wine is brilliantly clear with a slight tinge of rosé true to the Pinot Gris grape variety. The youthful flowery aroma is of honeysuckle and quite distinctive and attractive. The wine has a full mouth feel with long, pleasing, fruity flavors. The finish is bright and crisp and makes and excellent apertif.

… Clean and invigorating as a cool breeze from the sea through
a tangle of tropical flowers… Fresh as a just-peeled grapefruit
with elements of pear, stone-fruit and lime zest… soft-textured
but with keen and chiseled edges, like John Coltrane playing “Lush, Life…”
