2023 Ramato Pinot Gris




Ramato is our answer to that clarion call for rosé when it’s time to move past the Provence and up the rivers to Burgundy. Although 100% Pinot Gris, it may as well be a light Noir. A hint of reductive complexity before blood-orange soda zestiness and lashings of black pepper. Full carbonic maceration and 10 months in puncheon softens out the tannic edges. In the end, though, this wine has the character and fortitude to forge itself; the key is to fight back the temptation to over-make it. Feel free to let it take the place of Campari, with all of the grapefruit pithiness that implies, or just let it be the food- and time-loving vinous experience it was born to be. 100% Pinot Gris from the Scary Gully vineyard. 10 days on skins 100% whole bunch carbonic maceration. Pressed to older puncheons for 10 months bottled unfiltered and unfined.
