720 Cellars Pinot gris 07 Croft Vineyard

Review:

100% organically grown grapes from Croft Vineyard. Bright acidity, lovely nose of honeyed fruit and minerals. Flavors of sweet honeysuckle, crisp citrus, creamy pear, hints of tangerine, and a clean, refreshing, finish. The 720 Pinot gris is a fine example of the dry, crisp style of Oregon gris. This wine is really luscious with poached halibut, and goes well with any white fish, salmon, salad Nichoise, or grilled chicken.

Made as a vineyard designate with certified organically grown grapes, this wine shows the strengths of the site's ability to produce a deep mineral and stonefruit background, with a foundation of honey to support the bright aromatics of pineapple, pear and tropical fruits. In other words, it's like one of those groovy hats that Carmen Miranda once wore to show the world the samba, only it's a refreshingly dry and crisp white wine, and not a hat.

We gently press the whole clusters of Pinot gris to yield the finest of the juice run, and ferment it very slowly at cool temperatures to retain the delicate fruit balance. The wine is bottled in the Spring for Fall release. Like Pinot Noir, we find a little bit of time following bottling really improves the overall balance and expansion of this wine.
