A.D Beckham Amphora Pinot Gris


Grapes - Pinot Gris
Where - Willamette Valley, Oregon. USA
What - This is proper posh white from across the pond. It is utterly amazing and if you are up for tasting some of the more premium natural whites this planet has to offer we can’t think of a better place to start. A.D Beckham is a wonderful new concept of mixing the art of winemaking with the art of ceramic making. Pinot Gris grapes are harvested from some of the best hilltop spots in Willamette. After pressing with a small amount of skin contact half the wine is fermented and aged in Ceramic amphoras, handmade by the winemaker on site. The other half is pressed

into acacia barrels. After prolonged aging the wine is blended and bottled without any fining, filtration or vast amounts of sulphite. This refreshing yet complex and definitely one to take your time over. After a little time airing it comes alive with notes of redcurrant, mixed herbs, lavender, granny smith and citrus pith. Vegan. Organic. Low Intervention. (Complex, balanced, not a big enough bottle) 13.5%
