2019 Chateau St. Jean Cold Creek Vineyard Pinot Gris, Sonoma Coast
The Cold Creek Ranch is tucked away in the southern-most portion of the Sonoma Coast appellation. The ranch experiences maritime influences from both the San Pablo Bay and the Pacific Ocean, which provide cool breezes and morning fog. As a result, the Pinot Gris offers forward fruit flavors, lively acidity and hints of minerality. Fresh stone fruit aromas of white peach, lemon citrus blossom and crisp red apple lead to a mouthwatering palate with flavors of ripe peach and juicy pear. The wine has beautiful mineral notes that add complexity and a persistent core of acidity that leaves a lively and clean finish.
