Harris Ranch, Lockford Area, Foothills, District 11. This variety has surpassed Sauvignon Blanc to become the number two grape variety in North America. This is due mainly to its lighter structure and more fruit and floral tones that Chardonnays lose when over wooded. Typically Pinot Grigio comes in at 12.5% alcohol which is dramatically different from most Chardonnays that are usually 13.5 +. The net result is a very refreshing clean wine that is crisper on the palate.
Specs when diluted: TA 5.4, pH 3.52, Free SO2 30, S.G. 1.095 at 15C.
