About Seaglass 2016 Pinot Grigio, Santa Barbara
To preserve and enhance the snappy, clean fruit flavors and acidity, winemakers carefully craft this Pinot Grigio, protecting the juice from oxygen exposure. There's no malolactic fermentation, and instead the grapes ferment in stainless steel tanks at cold temperatures to retain the natural flavors and delicate aromas. It's bottled early, when the fruit flavors and aromas are at their best. Seaglass Pinot Grigio beautifully showcases Santa Barbara's unique coastal terroir. Pretty aromas of lemongrass, grapefruit and honeysuckle lead to lush flavors of ripe pear, apple and hints of tangerine. Clean and crisp with traces of minerality on the palate, this wine has mouthwatering acidity and a light, tart finish making it especially food-friendly. This 2016 was just awarded "Best of Class" with a 95 point score in the California State Fair Wine Competition. It scored 91 points in the Ultimate Wine Challenge. They called it a "Great Value" and said "Stony and citrusy on the nose, with allusions to apricot, peach, blossom, and lime zest. Crystalline and pure on the palate, with sea-like minerals as the overarching theme and a touch of kiwi and passion fruit."
