A dry white wine, light to medium, Dalton Pinot Gris unleashes citrus, pear and straw fragrant notes. This wine prides in flavour notes of pear, tart apple, and grapefruit with some hints of lemon and mint all in a 750ml bottle of sheer enjoyment.
The grapes for this wine come from vineyards located in Misgav in the Galilee Pan Handle. The vineyard is planted at an altitude of 750 meters on a steep northeastern facing slope. The soil is red clay and very stony. The vineyard was planted in 2010.
The lot was hand picked in two stages during the month of August. The wine was fermented mainly in steel tanks with a small portion fermenting in second use barrels. The components were aged for four months before being blended and bottled.
This is fruit driven wine most suited to the Mediterranean climate. The wine is well-balanced light with soft acidity combining the fruity aromas of citrus and guava.
