2012 will be release Oct. 1, 2013 and will ship shortly thereafter.

Previous vintage tasting notes: This vintage is teeming with aromas of apple, melon, pear and orange peel. Flavors of melon, pear and apple are balanced with mineral and spice. This dry wine is an excellent accompaniment to salmon, pork, and Asian-spiced food.

2009 Vintage Tasting Notes

The 2009 Pinot gris, Vitae Springs Vineyard has a wonderfully ripe, spicy nose of melon, Asian pear, and Honeycrisp apples with orange peel and sweet citrus blossom notes. Concentrated apple, pear, fresh blossoms and cobbler spices enter your mouth with a fresh sweetness that melds into a rich minerality and a completely dry finish. It is both textural and persistent in the mouth. Backed by great acidity, its great fruit is perfectly balanced by its length and richness in your mouth. It is a great match for salmon, pork, fish, and Asian-influenced foods and dishes with spicy notes. - the winery

Previous Vintage Tasting Notes

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

Always one of Oregon's best gris's, the Vitae Springs Pinot gris is quite Alsacian in style, with pear, peach, and lychee fruit flavors, lemon flower in the nose, and a refreshing, food oriented clean slatey finish.

From the winemaker: "The fruit and spice aromas are very intense with increased texture on the palate and a clean, lingering finish. The fruit is a mixture of ripe stone fruit and orange rind. Ripe Pinot gris gets a intriguing spice quality that sometimes has an almost chili-like heat."
