Fun fact. Pinot Gris is a genetic mutation of Pinot Noir and has a reddish-gray (Gris = Gray) color to its skin. How does Pinot Gris make a pink wine? Winemakers simply let the red-gray skins sit in contact with the clear juice for a few hours. The result with the Dyckerhoff 2016 is a vibrant, zesty, textured, tangy, red-fruited wine that will drink well on its own or with grilled salmon, guacamole, burgers and just about anything else you eat during the summer!
