2013 was one of the hottest years on record. A moderate winter lead into a warm spring and a very hot summer. We saw veraison two weeks earlier than normal, and began harvest a week ahead of schedule. A warm, dry September allowed for longer hang time of the grapes, which contributed to concentrated flavor development along with ripe tannins. Winemaking: The grapes were harvested in the very early hours of the morning so they would arrive to the winery cool. Once at the winery, the grapes went directly to the press, where the juice was gently pressed away from the skins. The juice was allowed to cold settle for two days before racking. The clean juice was inoculated with a yeast strain selected for Riesling. The wine was fermented cool over 25 days, allowing for optimal aroma and flavor development. Post fermentation, the separate lots were evaluated and the blend was created. To achieve a fruit forward style Riesling, we blended 76% of the wine from Brooks Vineyard and 24% from Spring Creek.
Lot 459 is the latest from the producer of our mega-popular Lot 359 (which was our #2 selling white wine of 2013 behind the Arroyo Seco Chards). Like 359, it's a perfect example of how Washington continues to excite the marketplace with compelling wines that offer terrific values, and is sourced from 30 to 40-year-old vines in the Columbia Valley.
2012 Pavi Wine Tu Tu Pinot Grigio Napa Valley 750 mL Wine
Manufacturer: Pavi Wine
Brand: Pavi Wine
Based on winemaker Rob Lawson's extensive experience working with Italian varietals in both California and Italy, he has crafted a wine based on the classic Italian Pinot Grigio varietal character of crisp bright acidity and stone fruit minerality. These elements provide a solid frame for the lush fruit-driven flavors of pure California sunshine. TuTu elicits the best of old and new world winemaking and the exceptional terroir of California. We like to say TuTu is a serious wine that does not take itself too seriously.
