WE'RE NOT SURE
This primo Pinot Gris is lively, light and crisp, with an effortless balance of brightness and a smorgasbord of fresh fruit, plus just a flash of citrus. A lush texture and oh-so-refreshing finish make this brilliant white equal parts serious, world-class wine and laid-back, easy sipper.
Derek guided this Gris from vine to wine, calling the shots at every step of the way. Your winemaker is in charge of none other than the historic Wiley Vineyard in Anderson Valley, meticulously growing the highest quality grapes he can – and bringing you some of the best Pinot Gris you’ve ever had.
- The vineyard is just 9 miles from the Pacific, making it a world-class spot for cultivating cool-climate grapes like Pinot Gris. With grapes this pristine, your winemaker says, “the wine practically makes itself. Angels should buy it now because it has a great pedigree, pure fruit character, and is downright delicious.”
- Perfectly balanced, classic and complex, Derek’s deeply delicious red drips with deep, dark fruit flavors and a swirl of spice all elegantly wrapped up in a silky-smooth mouthfeel and a full, long, lingering finish.
- When it comes to Pinot Noir, Derek says, “the quality of the grapes is of the utmost importance as it is such a transparent variety.” So with your help, he sourced grapes from a single vineyard deep in the coolest corner of Anderson Valley just 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean, where the conditions are picture-perfect for otherworldly Pinot.
- Wines from these grapes usually sell for north of $40 a bottle, but for helping Derek get his hands on some of the best Pinot around, you get this refined red for a fraction of that!
Lushly layered lighter fruit flavors mingle seamlessly with just a touch of spice and a delicate, juicy texture to bring you one of the hands-down most delicious, soul-warming Pinot Noirs Angels have ever funded.
Derek took this Pinot from vine to wine, overseeing every step in the vineyard all the way up to harvest, then every step in the winery from blending to barreling, until it was perfect enough to finally put in bottles and bring to you.
“I've made single vineyard Pinot Noirs that have sold for $99 a pop...and they sold out fast,” Derek says. “This wine is just as good at a fraction of the cost. Wiley is a world-class vineyard and the proof is in the bottle.”
