2006 Oregon Pinot Gris Willamette Valley

2006 Oregon Pinot Gris Willamette Valley Wine Details
Price: $14.00 per bottle

Description: The 2004 Pinot Gris bursts from the glass with intense fruit aromas. Irresistible fruit flavors are supported by an elegantly rich texture and a surprisingly crisp finish. The absence of oak and superb acid balance allows the subtle floral, mineral, and spice notes to deftly add complexity to the dominant fruitiness. Late harvested grapes from the high elevation Cloudrest Vineyard contribute unique grassy meadow subtleties to the finished wine.

Varietal Definition
Fermented beverage made with honey, water and yeast optionally with flavoring ingredients.
Pinot Grigio/Gris:
Pinkish-white variety producing a very crisp white wine. Grown in Oregon, the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, and more and more in California, it shows promise for other cool climates. Also known as Tokay d'Alsace in France, Rulander in Germany, and Pinot Grigio in Italy.
