2021 Calera Central Coast Vin Gris of Pinot Noir
Calera’s Central Coast wines are made from grapes grown by selected vineyards in California’s Central Coast Viticultural Area. This is a delightful, European-style dry Rosé, made of 100% Pinot Noir. The wine is light colored, fruity, crisp and flavorful. It’s spunky and fun, just right for barbeques, picnics and warm weather events.
Varietal Composition: 100% Pinot Noir
Made using grapes from a prized single vineyard in the Central Coast’s Cienega Valley AVA, this Vin Gris of Pinot Noir displays tantalizing layers of grapefruit, guava, wild strawberry and rose petals. On the palate, bright acidity adds poise and purity to the vibrant citrus, berry and tropical flavors as they glide to a long, juicy finish.
The 2021 growing season began with below-average winter rainfall followed by moderate spring temperatures, with budbreak occurring at varied times throughout the Central Coast. The temperate weather continued into early summer, which ensured abundant hangtime and one of the latest Central Coast harvests on record. The resulting wines show pin-point balance with lovely aromas, excellent energy and acidity, and pure sophisticated flavors.
