Willamette Valley Pinot Gris

Wine Type: White Wine

Country: United States

Region: Willamette Valley (Oregon)

Grapes: 100% Pinot Gris

Aroma: Notes of lemongrass, apple blossom, fresh spices, and candied orange greet you when you twist the cap

Tasting Notes: Beautifully delicate notes of white peach, starfruit, and pear up front with a little white pepper spice and white-cake notes to round it out. An expressive and pretty wine that is well-balanced and full of surprises.

James Suckling: “Apricot, lemon peel, pear skin and chalk on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with a fruity palate, crisp acidity and chalky character on the finish. Fruity finish with a slightly off-dry impression at the end . Drink now. Screw cap.”

Wine Enthusiast: “Juicy, sappy and flat-out delicious, this is lushly endowed with ripe citrus and apple fruit, along with hints of green melon. Set against crisp acidity, the freshness is compelling, and amped up with a palate cleaning minerality. This could age nicely, but the pleasure is right there right now, so why wait?”
