Airlie 7 Oregon White 2011

Member Review by Julia Crowley:

The seven grapes blended to produce this white wine (in order of most to least) are Müller Thurgau, Pinot Gris, Viognier, Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc. The aromas and flavors immediately reminded me of my days in the Florida Keys – juicy tropical pineapple, grapefruit and key lime are highlighted by a tiny touch of jasmine. Subtle acidity balances out the fruitiness and leaves the palate refreshed and wanting more. Anything and everything Thanksgiving will pair well with 7.

Nose: Grapefruit, slight petrol, citrus fruits and lemongrass Notes: Tropical fruit, Dole pineapple juice, spiced rum notes initially. Acid on the mid-palate, but more sweet than dry. Finish redolent of yellow freezer pop - sweet bananas. Easy summer drinking, could use a little more acid, high delicious factor. Pair with: Tacos, blackened fish, good by itself Residual Sugar: 1.6%

OregonAirlie Winemaker Elizabeth Clark just sold me on two of her Oregon whites yesterday! A blend of 7 white varietals, Airlie 7 is a refreshing and complex wine that appeals to all. Floral and grapefruit aromas lead into flavors of pear and apricot. A lightly sweetened palate offset by juicy acidity contributes to the lingering finish. Mller Thurgau, Pinot gris, Viognier, Gewrztraminer, Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot blanc. Perfect summer white!LIVE Certified sustainable.Double Gold - WinePressNW Best of the Best: 2013 Platinum JudgingDouble Gold - 2013 Oregon Wine AwardsGold - 2014 Best in GlassSilver - 2014 Sunset International Wine CompetitionSilver - 2012 International Women's Wine Competition
