2018 Ramato Pinot Gris

2018 Ramato Pinot Gris

Grown at the Biodynamic Filigreen Farm & fermented in concrete!

Anderson Valley

Breaking preconceived notions has long been a rewarding result with our wines. The Ramato (skin ferment) Pinot Gris from the Biodynamic Filligreen Farm is no exception. With up to five days on the skins this wine boasts a dimensionality and depth that may surprise and the attributes Tracey describes as “Funkytown” will delight those who enjoy a more adventurous palate.

Wine & Spirits Magazine says our[ Ramato [ is the year's Best Pinot Gris & a Top 100 Wine!

Tasting Note:

This bottle is an adventure through savory and earthy Fall flavors, beginning with the aromas of barnyard and umami-rich dried mushrooms. As these flavors subside after opening and aerating, the fruits and herbs emerge -- dried apricots, white nectarines, preserved oranges, sage. After a day crunching leaves, enjoy with a platter of cured meats, dried fruit, and marcona almonds. ]( is the year's Best Pinot Gris & a Top 100 Wine!
