Wine Review: This almost clear colored Pinot Gris from Oregon opens with a wet stone and mild lemon like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied, slightly acidic and fresh. The flavor profile is a mineral infused lemon verbena and pilsner beer blend with a hint of quince. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity linger nicely. This wine is food friendly and would pair well with grilled trout. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: For the Signature blend, our flagship label, we use a combination of organic fruit from our estate vineyard combined with other sustainably farmed vineyards throughout Oregon. Our Pinot Gris style emphasizes fruit forward aromas boasting citrus and tropical fruits, without excess residual sugar levels. This wine is designed to drink exceptionally well both on its own and when paired with food. In the 2013 vintage, lemon and orange blossom honey collide with rose water. This wine has a fresh, fruit forward front palate with a racy acidity balanced by roundness from contact with the lees. Seamless structure and a generous finish make this wine a true delight. Enjoy now through 2019.
