"Aurosa is an intriguing wine of uncommon methodology.  I grow the pinot gris for this wine more like a high end pinot noir, employing more sun exposure to the clusters and shoot positioning throughout the growing season.  This ensures a thickening of the skins and allows a fuller spectrum of flavor and aromatic development.  Conversely, the yields are elevated to increase acidity, repress sugars, and lengthen hang time.  The increased crop loads helps to retain a framework of minerality and acidity. Aurosa showcases a charming light golden rose color and unique hibiscus tea and rose hip tones.   Slight wisps of lavender, violets, and tea rose intermingle with citrus, river stone, and steel.  A layered texture compliments the dancing lacework of this intriguing pinot gris."- Winemaker's Notes
