2011 PINOT GRIS

THE WINE
Because of the cool climate in the Willamette Valley, our Pinot Gris has lovely, balanced layers of fruit, acidity and minerality.

VARIETAL APPELLATION VINTAGE NOTES
100% Pinot Gris 100% Willamette Valley Mild growing season weather and a late, Indian summer led to evenly ripe fruit with complexity and balance.

THE WINEMAKING
The grapes were night-harvested by hand and sorted prior to being pressed into a steel tank for fermentation. No oak or malolactic fermentation was utilzed in the winemaking process, in order to preserve the wine's crisp and refreshing character.

THE FLAVOR PROFILE
A bright bouquet of honeyed pear, dried white flowers and clean wet stone spring from the glass of our 2011 Pinot Gris. On the palate, bright flavors of crystallized lemon, ripe golden apple and honeydew melon abound, enhanced by a subtle hint of jasmine and quince. Finishing crisply with clean minerality and lemon zest, this wine would be a delight when paired with fresh oysters or a triple-cream Brie and baguette.
