Winemaking Notes: This wine is produced using the classic saignée method , allowing juice to remain in contact with the Pinot Noir skins for about 24 hours. The juice is then "bled" from the Pinot Noir tank before fermentation begins and inoculated on its own in a separate tank. The resulting wine is fermented dry developing its pink color, aromatics and bright fruit flavors.

Tasting Notes: The Sean Minor Vin Gris is a pale salmon color with vibrant aromas of ripe strawberries and watermelon. On entry, the wine displays bright tangy flavors of raspberries, cherries and strawberries. Throughout the midpalate and finish, raspberry and cherry fruit characters are balanced with spicy and crisp acidity that linger creating a refreshing and lengthy finish.
