Just as Pinot Noir is the signature red for Oregon, Pinot Gris has become their white wine of true distinction. Eyrie Vineyards started by David Lett is one of the Pioneer wineries in Oregon. Their four estate vineyards are located in the Red Hills of Dundee. The grapes for this '08 Eyrie were sourced from all four vineyards. This blend of grapes from all four vineyards shows rich varietal character and complexity rarely found in Pinot Gris. 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. Their 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.
