READ ABOUT TERRITORIAL
Territorial Pinot gris 06
Complex and inviting aromas of candied apple, pear, and slate that give way to bright and lively honeyed tropical citrus flavors of pineapple and lychee. Add the rich, viscous mouth feel and you have one of the finest examples of Oregon Pinot gris we've tasted.
Territorial Riesling 06
Vinified in the traditional style, this off-dry Riesling opens with gorgeous aromas of dried flower, spice honey and candied apricot. Luxurious and full in the mouth, but with the acidity to balance nearly 3% residual sugar.
Harvested from some of the oldest blocks in the Estate vineyard. With vine ages from 14 to 28 years, the wine shows the complexity and nuance found in mature plantings.
Territorial Pinot noir Rosé 06 $11.47/$12.75
The Territorial Rosé has an immediate room-filling aroma of grapefruit, tangerine and rose petal, followed by crisp fruit flavors and a pleasing, palate-cleansing acidity. Its fresh, floral scented fruit flavors and streak of fresh strawberry are intense, as are the spicy, caraway seed tinged herbal note in the main red raspberry and red cherry fruit flavors. This is the perfect wine with turkey- and the holidays are coming up soon.
