Pinot Gris 2011


Pinot Gris 2011

Origin of name:


Being the only ones until now to have planted this varietal in Lebanon, it was natural to try and develop a wine coming 100% out of it.

However, this varietal is capricious in our climate, and is generally made into a sweet late harvest wines (when the summers are milder). In cases of hot summers, the varietal is vinified as a dry wine like this one.
