Tasting Notes & Food Pairing

Summer is upon us and so with a flourish (and a flip of bacon wrapped scallops on the grill or a toss of zesty shrimp scampi) we release our 2020 Pinot Grigio!  Pinot Grigio is synonymous with summer, the outdoors, the lake, and relaxing with friends!  The cool golden glow and layered orchard & tropical fruit aromas make us think of sunny days and shade trees, picnics and barbeques, sitting by the pool and doing absolutely nothing more than enjoying the bounty of the vine!  A crisp and lush, juicy palate is the perfect quencher to beat the heat and enjoying the company of friends and family.  Enjoy!

Vintage Notes

2020 was a vintage of idyllic growing conditions, especially in northeast USA terms.  We could hardly ask for better growing conditions or a more forgiving and timely harvest.  We experienced all the heat we could desire in timely doses.  Not overbearing, just continuous and moderate.  There was a welcome level of comfort having the fruit basking post leaf removal without the worry of burn.  In addition, 2020 offered just the right amount of moisture stress (read lack of rain) to keep the fruit slightly dehydrated and the consequent flavor development of the skins and pulp lent a complexity to the juices that are playing out in the wines. Wines that people will be savoring both as a panacea to the angst that 2020 brings to the mind as well as feeding the palate the ever-present desire for excitement. A winemaker's dream.  Expect to see wines of extremely high quality from this vintage, both reds and whites (and sparkling!!).  Phil and Lauren have nursed these wines to speak well of the year that many will want to forget. A conundrum. Nature has prevailed, as she always will, over the whims of man.  How fortunate.  Happy drinking!
