Alsatian-inspired with notes of lime, green apple, white flower and wet stone. Following the nose are flavors of Anjou pear, white nectarine and citrus. The vibrant and crisp acidity balances out this medium bodied wine and carries it through the lingering finish.
This Pinot Gris is delicately fresh with floral notes and aromas of green apple, melon, and lemon zest. A smooth mid-palate follows bright acidity, apple and pear flavors up front. A crisp finish shows slight minerality with a hint of citrus. The perfect complement to light salads, seafood, or pasta. But we like it all by itself too.
Sourced exclusively from The Benches Vineyard at Wallula (1,400 feet above the Columbia River), where a constant breeze moderates temperatures to capture fresh flavors and give the wine its vibrant mouth feel. A light squeeze of the grapes on the press and a cool fermentation is used to enhance the Pinot Gris’ racy character.
Appealing floral aromas lead to flavors of guava, grapefruit, honey dew melon and lime zest with a hint of spice. The wine’s viscous mouthfeel is balanced nicely by its crisp acidity.
