Maddalena Monterey Pinot Grigio White Wine 750 ml

Our Maddalena Pinot Grigio is 100% Pinot Grigio and was farmed from our Rancho Soledad Vineyard in Monterey, so named for the nearby Soledad Mission founded in 1791. With its close proximity to the Pacific Ocean, the Monterey appellation has a classic cool climate with morning fog and afternoon breezes; here, grapes develop flavor slowly and fully while preserving precious natural acidity. Rancho Soledad’s sandy loam soils are derived from decomposed granite, imparting a slight minerality to its wines. The 2021 growing season was long and cool, even for Monterey, yielding fruit that showed refined phenolic development. We harvested the fruit for this Pinot Grigio in one pass on September 23rd. This is a dry, light bodied wine that reveals notes of baking spice and honeysuckle on a persistent finish. We are proud that our Paso Robles and Monterey vineyards are certified sustainable by CSWA. At our certified sustainable Paso Robles winery, solar panels provide 100% of the needed electricity, and wastewater is effectively reclaimed and recycled for additional uses.
