Driven by a passion for Pinot Noir and a love of the land, Don and Wendy Lange founded their winery in the Dundee Hills of Oregon's northern Willamette Valley. The year 1987 marked the Lange’s first vintage and consisted of the three varietals they embrace today: Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Chardonnay. The Langes' mission is to produce consistent, complex, balanced wines that express terroir and dedicated stewardship. Known for his even hand, Winemaker Don Lange crafts beautifully balanced wines from estate fruit, sustainably and organically farmed in the famed red Jory soil of the prestigious Dundee Hills appellation. To further supplement their 15,000 case production, the Langes purchase additional fruit from renowned vineyards in the surrounding area. Long-standing relationships with these talented growers have helped the winery establish a well-deserved reputation for consistency and complexity in the wines. In addition to Pinot Gris and Chardonnay, Don bottles at least six different Pinot Noirs, paying meticulous attention to each lot of wine. While guiding its journey through a careful barrel regime, he blends as he sees fit or bottles his favorites as single-vineyard offerings. Don is joined by his son Jesse in these endeavors; thus the Lange Estate legacy continues with Jesse's expert contributions in both the cellar and the vineyard. Read less

Barrel fermented style. Racy citrus and floral notes combine with honey, lychee and a strong fig character throughout. Nice and complex on the palate. - Tasted at the winery 8/17/10



Tasting Notes:

Lange Estate Winery was the fourth producer in the United States to work with Pinot Gris and winemaker, Don Lange, was the first to produce a barrel-fermented style. Neutral oak puncheons are used to lend weight and texture to the wine while maintaining remarkably balanced acidity. The nose displays hints of ripe melon, mandarin, jasmine blossom, and stone fruit minerality, while the palate reveals grapefruit, lychee, white peach, and fennel. With its round, rich mid-palate and long, clean finish, the Pinot Gris Reserve has become the flagship white wine from Lange and is consistenly among the top examples of this popular Oregon varietal.
