Review:

One of our most popular white wines, year after year. Flavors of white peach, crisp apple and lemon blossom. With a long, clean finish, this wine is perfect with rich foods such as lobster and scallops, or other strongly-flavored, spicy dishes.

2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

Matt Kramer, in the Oregonian, says: "A really good pinot gris is dry, has a succulent, dense texture and delivers scents and tastes of honeydew, white peach and citrus notes. This 2008 bottling hits all the right notes. A blend of three Willamette Valley vineyards - Sheppard (63 percent); Oracle (22 percent) and Abbey Ridge (15 percent) - this is Oregon grown pinot gris as it ought to be. Serve with all sorts of fish dishes (including salmon), as well as rich, spicy preparations such as Indian and Thai curries. It's a standout deal at $15.95 a bottle." -8-8-09

The wine displays a variety of floral aromas reminiscent of a very fine Riesling. This weighty fruit is fleshed out with a talc/mineral note and a dash of fresh ginger. A classic Willamette Valley Pinot Gris, the wine has plenty of weight on the palate from exceptional fruit concentration and crisp, refreshing acidity.

The 2008 Willamette Valley Pinot Gris is a blend of 15% Abbey Ridge Vineyard, 22% Oracle Vineyard, and 63% Sheppard Vineyard. The hallmarks of the 2008 growing season are exceptional weight and terrific acidity. The 2008 vintage will be one of the great vintages of the decade. The juice was stainless steel fermented to maintain the freshness and clarity of the very subtle varietal character of northern Willamette Valley Pinot Gris. We did not allow the wine to undergo a malolactic fermentation, preferring instead to accentuate the bright, crisp character of the fruit. Lees contact during aging added weight and texture to the palate.

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

The 2007 Willamette Valley Pinot Gris is a blend of 26% Abbey Ridge Vineyard, 37% Oracle Vineyard, and 37% Sheppard Vineyard. The juice was stainless steel fermented to maintain the freshness and clarity of the very subtle varietal character of northern Willamette Valley Pinot Gris. We did not allow the wine to undergo a malolactic fermentation, preferring instead to accentuate the bright, crisp character of the fruit. Lees contact during aging added weight and texture to the palate.
