2015 Forlorn Hope Dragone Ramato Pinot Gris

2015 Forlorn Hope Dragone Ramato Pinot Gris

Grown in the Rorick Vineyard, high in the Sierra Foothills of Calaveras County. This Pinot gris is fermented on the skins in the traditional Italian ramato style. A pure and true conductor of terroir, the Dragone Ramato speaks evocatively of the combination of schist topsoil and dolemite-rich limestone subsoil that makes our family vineyard unique to the state. Precisely cut and well defined in structure and texture, this ramato makes a compelling study in the effect of site on wine when tasted alongside the Forlorn Hope Kirschenmann Pinot gris.
