2020 Pence Vineyards PTG Estate Pinot Noir/Gamay Blend, Sta. Rita Hills   

The estate grown PTG is our version of the little known PasseToutGrains made in Burgundy and is traditionally a blend of Gamay and Pinot Noir. Gamay thrives particularly in the southern portion of Burgundy and is generally a higher-yielding varietal, but shares many of the delicate characteristics associated with Pinot Noir. The reason for its unknown value here in the U.S. is that most PasseToutGrains are consumed in Paris bistros due to its wonderful food affinity and drinkability. We harvest from two bordering rows of Gamay and Pinot Noir to ensure even ripening and similar aspects.
