A slight departure from the 2018 wine, with a complete focus on Pinot Gris, macerated on its skins as a singular variety and expression of Momtazi Vineyard.
While it's quite distinctive in its youth with its tannic structure, light body, and the savory, tea-like impression it leaves, something I learned from the 2018 vintage was that this wine truly benefits from some cellaring.
A wine for food, this Ramato works with everything with a little fattiness to it. The tannins love something unctuous to squeeze its grip on to: pizza or braised meats, mushroom tart, BBQ, Toulouse sausage, and certainly duck confit.
