Avery's Blend

Avery's Blend Wine Details
Price: $15.00 per bottle

Description: Named for the eldest of our children, Avery’s blend offers a delicious combination of Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Viognier. The crisp apple, pear & grapefruit flavors of Pinot Gris in combo with the stonefruits & viscosity of Viognier and the aromatics of Pinot Blanc create an interesting yet complex blend. The fruit was sorted from our top vineyards and production was limited for this wine which will only be offered at Oswego Hills. If you’re looking for full body, lots of fruit, and a smooth finish give this wine a try.

Varietal Definition
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.
Pinot Blanc:
White grape popular for the dry white wines it produces. Increasingly grown in California, the Northwest, Northeast, Canada.
The most acclaimed white wine grape from France's Rhône Valley, Viognier is a highly aromatic varietal, with a flavor profile that could include peach, apricot, nectarine, lichee, musk and flower blossom. The heady perfume of this varietal is one of its trademarks, although its flavors are sometimes problematic in matching with food. However, it does well with lobster, crab and moderately flavored fish. Use it as an apéritif as an alternative to Chardonnay. The "Rhône Rangers" in California have done an excellent job promoting this varietal.
