Leaping Horse California Pinot Grigio
2020 Leaping Horse California Pinot Grigio....$9.99
The 2020 Pinot Grigio is full of exotic floral notes on the nose, which is followed up by lovely flavors of green apples, citrus and a light spiciness that exudes through this wine. It finishes with a touch of red apple and fresh peaches.
The Kautz family has been promoting and working with sustainable viticulture for over 35 years. Crop reduction, leaf removal, organic materials and drip irrigation are used throughout the vineyards to improve the quality and intensity of flavors. Cover crops, which attract beneficial insects, are also employed, as well as the placement of owl and wood duck boxes around the vineyards and ponds to help preserve the surrounding habitats. This Pinot Grigio comes from soils that are sandy loam and well-drained allowing the wonderful ripeness to come through to the grapes. The wine is aged in stainless steel.
