Pinot gris Yamhill County Cuvèe

Pinot gris Yamhill County Cuvèe Wine Details
Price: $15.00 per bottle

Description: A bold Pinot gris with honey notes and no shortage of fruit, this wine is huge in every dimension. Its heavy palate weight will pair beautifully with spicy Cajun, Thai, Indian, and even Latin American cuisine. The fruitiness, acid and weight will help to cleanse the palate and prepare you for the next spicy bite. Equally enjoyable on its own, as a summer sipping wine, the 2003 vintage is the most age-worthy Pinot gris we have ever made. It will go the distance, peaking in 2007 — a long bottle age for an Oregon Pinot gris.

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.
