In the days when wine production was rapidly expanding and tobacco was in decline, contracts were offered to grow grapes. The first blocks of Chrismont were transformed from tobacco to grape vine in the 1980s. As a mutation of the deep purple Pinot Noir and the greenish yellow Pinot Blanc, Pinot Grigio runs a spectrum of fruit characters that vary according to terroir and clime. Fruit is vinified in chilled fermenters to maintain varietal freshness, upon completion and following a term of repose for clarification, components are assembled along with a small percentage of reserve wine for added complexity and extra interest.
Straw hues, copper highlights. The nose carries lifted aromas of pawpaw and white peach with an underlying layer of spiced custard and cream.
