Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The Terra d’Oro 2015 Pinot Grigio is vivacious and exudes stunning mineral details. A bright nose filled with ripe pear and a touch of orange blossom leads to a smooth and lavish palate of citrus zest, juicy Bosc pears and hints of cardamom. The oak barrel fermentation imparts richness to this elegant wine, which is balanced by the crisp acidity and refreshing mineral undernotes. The richness of this wine affords a bit of creaminess, serve the Terra d’Oro 2015 Pinot Grigio with penne pasta topped with a light cream sauce and fresh greens.

Vineyard Notes
Pinot Grigio, also known as Pinot Gris, is a genetic mutation of the Pinot Noir grape and was a popular planting in Burgundy and Champagne, France until the late 19th century. Pinot Grigio has garnered international recognition over the past decade as more winemakers are committed to making quality Pinot Grigio. The Terra d’Oro 2015 Pinot Grigio stands as a testament to this movement. The majority of our grapes are hand-picked at the winery’s Los Alamos vineyard in Santa Barbara County. The vineyard’s combination of well-drained, sandy soil and steep hillside plantings stress the vines just enough to bring intense varietal character to the fruit. Santa Barbara’s maritime influence supports a long and cool growing season, which is critical for the Pinot Grigio grapes to properly ripen and develop concentrated flavors.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes are gently hand-harvested in the early morning hours to ensure cooler temperatures during the long ride from Santa Barbara to Amador County. Upon arrival at the winery, the fruit is handled with care. The grapes go to press for gentle processing, minimizing the potential extraction of unwanted astringency and color from the skin and seeds. The clean Pinot Grigio juice is immediately sent to stainless steel fermenters and the Muscat and Chardonnay juice is fermented in French oak barrels (25% new). The Muscat grapes add a beautiful floral characteristic to the wine and the Chardonnay imparts buttered, oak influences to the fresh, fruit flavors. During fermentation, the juice is kept at very low temperatures for over a month, to support the bright, clean fruit character.
