Ruth Lewandowski "Naomi" Mendocino County Grenache Gris 2015

Winemakers Notes
The 2013 Naomi is 100% Grenache gris from the Gibson Ranch of Mendocino's McDowell Valley. Rather than treating this fuchsia-toned grape like a red wine and macerating it with its skins, I whole cluster pressed the fruit and seperated the juice from the skins to ferment in egg-shaped tank. The manually controlled press cycle was a long, fairly rough one as I wanted to extract a higher than average amount of phenolic material from the beautiful, very unique fruit. Over the ageing process, Naomi has developed the sexiest faintly peachy glow, which just so happens to match the white peach aroma. Overripe pear and a touch of creamy pineapple round things out Whites made from the Grenache family often have a somewhat waxy or oily texture...this rings true here, with a refreshingly balanced acidity to counter the weight.
