FEL Wines producerer Pinot Noir, Chardonnay og Pinot Gris fra Anderson Valley og Sonoma Coast. Winemakeren hos FEL er Winemaker Ryan Hodgins som, før han kom til FEL Wines, var hos Hanzell. Vinene fra FEL er vores bedst sælgende Pinots samt Chardonnays fra USA, hvilket ubetinget skyldes deres imponerende evne til at skabe vine, som mestrer balancen mellem frugt, terroir, fad og noget så simpelt som charme. Disse vine smager bare af mere.....

Der arbejdes både med Village Cuveer og enkeltmarksvine fra nogle af områdets ubetingede benchmark sites. I 2011 købte Cliff Lede, som er ejer af FEL Wines, Savoy Vineyard og man fik dermed adgang til den måske bedste mark i Andersson Valley. Yderligere tilbyder FEL Wines enkeltmarksvine fra Donnelly samt Ferrington. Bogstaverne i FEL repræsenterer Florence Elsie Lede, Cliff Lede's mor, en hjemmevinmager, der gav den tidlige inspiration til Cliffs kærlighed til vin.

Vineyard Notes
This wine was made from a blend of fruit from three vineyards. Located in the “Deep-End” of the Valley near the town of Navarro are Wiley and Klindt Vineyards, whose close-proximity to the Pacific Ocean lends bright citrus flavors and refreshing acidity. Donnelly Creek Vineyard, located near the town of Boonville in the warmer end of Anderson Valley, is better protected from the ocean breezes, giving the wine its rich tropical notes.
 
Production Notes
The fruit was harvested August 24 through September 16 at an average of 24.1° Brix, then whole cluster pressed to tank and settled for 24 hours. The final blend is composed of lots fermented in small neutral French oak barrels with five months of sur lie aging (45%), in a 900 gallon French oak oval tank (40%), and in a stainless steel tank (15%).
 
Winemaker Notes
The FEL 2015 Anderson Valley Pinot Gris is a lovely expression of Anderson Valley’s cool-climate terroir, simultaneously rich and unctuous but with a tremendous brightness and refreshing acidity. Aromas of Asian pear, quince, and lemon verbena burst from the glass, while the palate is redolent with flavors of grapefruit, apricot, and even hints of olive oil. Texturally, this wine dances between rich and oily, and bright and refreshing. - Ryan Hodgins, Winemaker
