"Part stainless-steel fermented, part neutral French oak-fermented, this light, refreshingly upfront wine offers bristling acidity around shocks of grapefruit, lemon and lime, settling into itself as it goes. The oak is well integrated and nicely subtle, allowing the fruit and minerality to speak."
The Grist Vineyard was purchased by Woody’s grandparents in the late 70’s. Woody oversees farming operations and lives full time on the property. In 2012 he made his first significant infrastructure decision on Grist to graft over 3.5 acres of Petite Sirah to musque clone Sauvignon Blanc. 2014 marks Alysian’s inaugural year of working with this fantastic mountain fruit. This wine has distinctive green grass, lemongrass and daphne floral notes on the nose. The medium body palate carries wet stone and grapefruit impressions. Cold fermented in 2/3 stainless steel and 1/3 neutral oak barrels for six months. No RS or ml. 13.3% alcohol by volume.
