Elk Cove Pinot Gris 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Not yet reviewed; 2012 vintage rated 92 points and 'Year's Best Pinot Gris' by Wine & Spirits: Mouthwatering and brisk, this succulent gris has the scent of apple blossoms, its flavors giving the impression of a slice of crisp apple spritzed with lemon. A summer refresher, or a good pairing with petrale sole.

Elk Cove Vineyards is one of Oregon's oldest and most respected wine producers. Founded in 1974, by Pat and Joe Campbell, our focus has always been to produce hand crafted, Estate grown wines that can rival the best in the world. Estate Vineyards Estate vineyards now cover over 180 acres on four separate sites in the Northern Willamette Valley. Steep south facing slopes, of Willakenzie and Laurelwood soil types with excellent drainage, provide the perfect environment to grow the world class wine grapes that are the basis for creating Elk Cove wines. Proper site selection and meticulous vine management along with harvesting at very low yields creates the concentration and depth of flavor that are hallmarks of Elk Cove wines. Family Owned and Operated Elk Cove Vineyards proudly remains a family owned and operated winery. Winemaker Adam Godlee Campbell joined forces with his parents in 1995 to produce outstanding Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. Growing up among the vines on the Elk Cove Estate has instilled a tremendous respect for the soil in which the grapes were grown, therefore his role as winemaker is one of stewardship over intervention. In the winery Adam employs gravity flow and gentle handling to protect the inherent qualities of the Estate grown fruit. We at Elk Cove hope you enjoy these wines as much as we all enjoyed the creative process in making them. Read less

This is a really tasty Pinot Gris from Willamette. Similar to a high end Napa Sauv Blanc with soft lemon pith, ripe green apple, a touch of white grapefruit, nice mouth feel, really nice acidity, and a fairly long finish.

Tangerine and pineapple on the nose, this wine gives a punch of fresh peach, ripe pear and a hint of anise on the palate. With a mouth-coating viscocity and a lush lingering finish, this is a serious white wine. - Winery pH: 3.12 TA: 7.95 Alc: 13 % v/v
