Winemaker Margo Van Staaveren

The Cold Creek Ranch experiences maritime influences from the Pacific Ocean, which provide cool breezes and morning fog. As a result, the Pinot Gris offers forward fruit flavors, lively acidity and hints of minerality.

This wine offers bright aromas of freshly picked white peach, lemon citrus blossom and red apple. The nose leads to a mouthwatering palate with flavors of ripe stone fruits and juicy pear. The wine has interesting mineral notes that add complexity and the persistent core of acidity leaves a lively and clean finish.

Bottle Size: 750 ml

Winemaker's Note

The Cold Creek Ranch is tucked away in the covered Sonoma Coast appellation where maritime influences produce Pinot Gris with luscious fruit flavors, naturally bright acidity and hints of minerality. The majority of the blend was fermented in small, stainless steel vats to preserve the pure varietal character. The remaining portion was fermented in neutral oak barrels to add body and creamy texture to the wine.
