This wine’s story: As always, the 2018 MAJA was creative directed by Maverick Alexandra Jean Amell, daughter of Stephen and Cassandra Amell. This year brought her the inspiration to include a pony on the label, but not just any pony, “a yellow pony with pink hair, that loves every rainbow in town.” This vintage is a special one, as you’ll notice the color of the wine is more pink than usual! This can happen with Pinot Gris (Gris = Grey), which tends to have berries and subsequently juice that turn grey/pink in color. Every vintage is different, and this year the grapes took on a more pink hue than usual, resulting in a pale rose color in the finished wine! Tastewise, this wine is consistent with past years, with hints of white peach, white flowers, jasmine and honeysuckle.
