Score: 89The Wine Spectator, Dec. 31st, 2007 "Lightstraw. Leesy apple, anise and floral aromas are sharply focused andlightly smoky. Fleshy orchard fruit flavors become chewier with air,picking up a bitter peach pit quality that carries through the finish.A denser and more serious style of this variety than one usually findsin Oregon. This was raised completely in stainless steel."89 points
A wonderful dry wine with great flavors that rise above the dryness. Fesh fruits dance with a int of citrus to make a delightful combination to accompany a heavy cream sauce.
External Reviews for Cristom Pinot Gris Eola Amity Hills Estate
This Pinot Gris is a pale-straw color. It has the aroma of Asian pears, white flowers and green apples along with some mineral notes. On the palate it shows a ripeness, viscosity and concentration that give the impression of fruitiness in a decidedly dry wine. This dry style will make it an excellent accompaniment to a variety of dishes.
