Keep it natural, baby.
This grey-red skinned grape is a mutation of Pinot Noir. It is one of the darkest-skinned grapes common to white wine, but much of its nobility lives in its pigmented skins, which is emphasized in this style of Pinot Gris. Known for refreshing citrus zest flavors, savory spice, and perfume, it is a versatile grape of moderate acidity and full body.
Minimus is a science project for Chad Stock, winemaker at Omero Cellars. The name reflects his philosophy that to produce the most pure and natural product, one must use minimal interference. Each wine is the result of an experiment designed to challenge Chad's formal education in Enology. The resulting wines, should they survive the experiment, are numbered in the order that they are released, and will be produced only once. Chad keeps track of each experiment in his journal, documenting every aspect of the process including conception, implementation, vineyard site selection, and much, more more. Ultimately, his goal is to use these experiments to grow as a winemaker, and to some day to write a craft winemaking book about the experience.
