All the vineyards were harvested between the end of September and early October. We pressed these grapes as quickly as possible when they came into the winery whether it was day of night in order to keep the flavors fresh- the key to great Pinot Gris. We settled it for 48 hours in
a chilled stainless steel tank and then racked off the sediment to another stainless steel tank. We chose Epernay II as the yeast here because we can control it with temperature. We intentionally stopped fermentation to leave 5.9 grams/liter or roughly .5% residual sugar.
