Winemaker Notes
"Hawks View Winery Block 15 Pinot Gris grapes were allowed to ripen longer than the rest of the estate fruit. The sugars naturally increased and classic Alsatian flavors emerged because of this extended hang time and the noble rot, Botrytis Cinera. The nose brings to mind mandarin orange and nectarine while on the pallet there are the sweet flavors of honeydew melon and blood range. Within a few moments the ample acid balances the sweetness of this late harvest wine. A compliment to all manner of rich desserts or perhaps get fancy with a torchon of foie gras, toast points, marmalade and a strong cheese." - Winemaker, Don Crank III
