Maloof Rouge de Gris 2021

750ml - 12.5% ABV — Wilamette Valley, Oregon, USA

From the winemaker:

ROUGE DE GRIS
Johan Vineyard
A fully macerated, light red wine made from Pinot Gris. Warm aromatics of fall spices, and crunchy flavors of cranberry and cherry.

This wine was very much born out of our yearly “PJs” blend, which is also predominantly skin contact Pinot Gris. As we honed in year to year on what works best for us in fermenting Pinot Gris as a light red wine, the Johan barrels really began to come into their own. In 2019 we began bottling the Johan as our 4th single vineyard designation of Gris, and the only to see any maceration.

APPROACH:
Destemmed and fermented on the skins in open top fermenters with daily pigéage until fully dry. 15 to 20% of the fruit is carbonically fermented separately for the same period. Both lots are then pressed off together, and moved to neutral Burgundy oak barrels to age for 9 to 10 months. Bottled without fining or filtration.
