From bad-ass winemaker André Mack comes this OPP Pinot Gris - OPP being short for “Other People’s Pinot.” When a neighboring winery went out of business, André scooped up a few barrels of Pinot Noir that still needed bottling, referring to it as the "other people’s pinot" - and so a label was born. OPP has since come to include this Pinot Gris varietal.


Freshly bloomed lilies, chalk dust and white gummy bears. Watered down canned pineapple, white chalky earth notes braided into crisp fresh flowing water. No residual sugar brightened with a bouncy blonde cheerleader-like acidity. Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio are made from the same grape but Pinot Gris is a more serious, New World white, while Pinot Grigio is a more casual style that will likely be the House White at your local watering hole.
Smells like the morning brine of ocean air with energized apple, supple guava and electric lime.

After plump roundness (like whole milk) you get a technicolor acidity with an unending finish.
