PINOT GRIS 2018
Rich tropical aromas of guava and papaya. Floral notes of plumeria and orange blossom give the wine an intoxicating bouquet. In the mouth, the wine has a juicy freshness with a tart quality reminiscent of lemon granita, and flavors of pineapple.

2018 GROWING CONDITIONS:
StoneRiver Vineyard’s 2018 growing season was characterized by a relatively mild and dry winter, a cool spring, and a dry and warm summer. Our winter temperatures were close to average. Neither our Upper or Lower vineyards experienced any freezing. A moderately cool spring resulted in bud break starting a little later than usual and a slightly warmer May through August resulted in plant growth that was closer to our annual average. Our 2018 vintage growing degree day totals were above average, similar to 2017 but under records set in 2015 and 2016. All in all, 2018 was a great year for memorable wines.
