Robert Sinskey Vineyards Vin Gris Carneros 2019
Robert Sinskey organically farms five vineyards in the Carneros region with a total of 32 different vineyard blocks for 32 different lots of Pinot Noir. Of those, five blocks are selected for the Vin Gris of Pinot Noir. RSV Winemaker, Jeff Virnig, has been crafting this beautiful Vin Gris of Pinot Noir for thirty years. He has had the luxury of time to refine the Vin Gris and has perfected techniques like picking each vineyard at different levels of ripeness for each site - at that razor’s edge of flavor and brightness - to assure the wine is balanced, complex and just plain delicious. The grapes are hand-harvested at night, delivered to the cellar door in the wee hours of the morning where they are delicately whole-cluster pressed and the pure juice is cold-fermented to preserve the layered fresh fruit, mineral and spice characteristics of the finished wine. Purely delicious!
