1998 Bonny Doon Vineyard Vin Gris de Cigare

Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) Fresh and bright with a pale pink/salmon color reminiscent of a of Côtes de Provence Rosé or perhaps even a Vin Gris from Burgundy. Hints of wild strawberry, white cherry, apple blossom, and the barest whiff of spearmint. Palate is quite dry and zesty with pale red fruits, blood orange, citrus and a lean yet supple finish. But what is most compelling about the wine is its elegance. We deployed far less skin contact than in years past, and in this instance, less is truly more. Delicious today but will develop added richness and aroma with an additional 6-12 months of bottle age.

Winemaker's Notes

(From «nv» Vintage) Vin Gris de Cigare 2002 MARSANNE ATTACKS! the palate in a very gentle fashion and we’ve included a generous dollop of it in this classic southern French inspired cuvée. Our ’02 Vin Gris is an exercise in the usual refreshingly fruity aromatics that one typically finds in a proper pink – strawberry and rose with perhaps a subliminal suggestion of linden flower and lime blossom. There is a wonderful creaminess and sophistication to this year’s pink.
