Belle Vallée Pinot Gris Oregon 2006
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Even though this winery has the wrong OSU alumni connection, Oregon instead of The Ohio State University, they create some great wines. This Willamette Valley winemaker creates this gem from a variety of vineyards throughout Oregon. The wine has a moderate acidy with peach and pear flavors and a creamy vanilla texture that makes this a satisfying food friendly wine. I have a friend that seems to like wine and bottle marketing somewhat equally. She loved both when this was gifted to her recently. Cool bottle designs that change with the vintages.
External Reviews for Belle Vallée Pinot Gris Oregon
While many wineries in Oregon are quite specific as to where their grapes come from, Belle Vallée strives for continuity of quality, year in and year out. You can count on getting a wine with consistently juicy red fruit, made in a fresh, appealing style.
