Valley Oaks Pinot Grigio

Valley Oaks Pinot Grigio

This Pinot Grigio is clean and fresh, with a fruit-forward character and a crisp acid backbone. Vibrant aromas of mango, pear, orange spice, lemongrass and pineapple segue to an inviting palate of tropical fruit, apple, pear and orange citrus. A pleasing hint of minerality is underscored by a wonderfully round finish.

The bountiful warm days and cool nights that characterize California’s Mediterranean climate ensured ideal conditions for ripening our Pinot Grigio fruit to perfection. A warm mid-August harvest yielded ample ripe fruit, ideally suited to delivering vivid aromas and complex flavor in the glass.

    “This wine shows bright spiced fig, apple, melon, and flowers on the nose, followed by a palate of vibrant acidity and a complex mix of the nose elements. I've always appreciated Fetzer's ability to bring high quality at affordable prices.”
