2019 PiNOT GRIGIO
2019 vintage in Yakima Valley WA was an ideal slow-motion challenge for white grapes. A normal Summer was followed by lower than usual temperatures in early Fall, which turned out to be very handy in keeping naturally refreshing acidity levels. Crop control was also a key tool to prevent delayed ripening and other serious issues. Overall, the grapes were elegantly balanced, profoundly aromatic and had medium sugar levels helping to stir away from unpleasant high alcohol levels.
Different techniques were utilized to boost the natural elegance of this variety. Extended cold maceration, cold fermentation and sur lie helped to develop an eclectic array of flavors, with a soft round texture and a zesty finish. Because for some, it is all about expressing the story the vineyard wants to tell written by a Winemakers patient guidance, oak was not used at all.
The 2019 Ficarra Cellars Pinot Grigio elicits a wide array of sweet aromas such as peach, almonds, Fuji apples, Bosc pears, and limes. This easy-going wine can be enjoyed as an aperitif or paired to perfection with Sushi, Spaghetti Marinara, Ravioli, garlic butter shrimp or Cannelloni mussels.
