Lange Estate Winery Pinot Gris "Reserve" 2009
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.
Food Pairings for Lange Estate Winery Pinot Gris "Reserve"
Lange Estate Winery was the fourth producer in the United States to work with Pinot Gris and winemaker, Don Lange, was the first to produce a barrel-fermented style. Neutral oak puncheons are used to lend weight and texture to the wine while maintaining remarkably balanced acidity. The nose displays hints of ripe melon, mandarin, jasmine blossom, and stone fruit minerality, while the palate reveals grapefruit, lychee, white peach, and fennel. With its round, rich mid-palate and long, clean finish, the Pinot Gris Reserve has become the flagship white wine from Lange and is consistenly among the top examples of this popular Oregon varietal.
475 cases produced.
Aged 5 months in French Oak.
Notes: Neutral French oak puncheon barrels
