External Reviews for Elk Cove Pinot Gris
This is a fruit-powered wine, loaded with fresh pear, melon and tropical flavors. It shows no sign of having suffered from the wet, cool weather that hit Oregon during the 2007 harvest. It seems riper than the perfectly balanced '06 bottling, with lower acids and a streak of vanilla and coconut wrapping up the finish.
Light and fragrant, with cantaloupe and pear aromas and flavors, lingering on the silky frame. Drink now.
Lively, with pineapple and summer squash aromas and flavors that are unusual but pleasant. Drink now.
This is an elegant, refreshing style, scented with a lush nose that cleverly blends cut fruit, blossom, citrus and a hint of mineral. The mixed fruit flavors continue on the palate - pear, melon, peach and spice, perfectly balanced and ripe.
This straightforward, fruity effort is bright, tart, and full of lemon and melon flavors, with a touch of spice for added interest.
Easygoing, with tangerine and melon flavors, lingering nicely. Drink now.
Vibrant pear fruit is at the heart of this elegant gris. Framed by a mild herbal scent, its succulent fruit is unabashedly rich and pure, but the wine never becomes too heavy or opulent. Talclike acidity lifts the wine and gives it a gentle contour. A good accompaniment to roast halibut.
2009 was a vintage of abundance. Ideal springtime weather led to a hot summer, which gave us a beautiful, uniform and potentially prolific crop. Warm temperatures at harvest time lulled some growers into picking late, at potentially high alcohols. The right decision, top winemakers agree, was to get the grapes in while they still had fresh flavors. As always, we showed our commitment to quality by thinning and green harvesting to achieve earlier ripening and better concentration of flavors. As winemaker, Adam Campbell, states “harvest went off without a hitch and we picked the grapes at a deliberate but frankly leisurely pace which allowed focusing on retained acidity.” So, vintage 2009 may be remembered as one of those rare combinations of excellent quality and quantity, with the wines showing flash.
