Eyrie Vineyards Dundee Hills Pinot Gris 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

This blend of grapes from all four vineyards shows rich varietal character and complexity rarely found in Pinot Gris (grigio). Fermented in stainless steel tanks, the wine gains added dimensions from remaining on the lees until bottling. It is given only one loose filtration prior to bottling. Our first Pinot gris was produced in 1970, a full ten years before other winegrowers recognized its New World potential. The Eyrie Vineyards continues to be credited with setting the standard for flavor and value.

With these two tastings, Oregon won its first recognition as the New World home for Pinot noir. Read less

Just a fantastic Willamette pinot gris! First hint is of apricot which is quickly followed by not so ripe peach. Nice acidity carries some lemon lime to the mid and back of the tongue. Fairly complex for a pinot gris, one of the all time QPR leaders.
