User Reviews for Methven Family Vineyards Pinot Gris Willamette Valley

Winemaker's Notes:

Cropped at 2.2 tons per acre and harvested in late October, these grapes were carefully whole-cluster pressed and settled overnight before being racked into stainless steel barrels where they fermented slowly and at cool temperatures for a period of 5 months. Using up to 8 different yeast types, including native strains, our wines are able to achieve great complexities and texture. The 2004 Pinot Gris is a pale golden color with incredible brilliance. The aromas are plentiful and flattering with yeast, apple-sauce, creamy hazelnuts and bread-pudding with spices. The mouthfeel is rich and heavy although not overly heavy as the bright acid lifts this wine keeping it light and fresh. Flavors of pear compote, bread yeast, and fuji apple mingle playfully on the tongue leaving a long and lingering finish. Our Pinot Gris is meant to be enjoyed young with foods, which take advantage of Oregon s rich resources such as: salmon, trout,shellfish, hazelnuts, chanterelle and morel mushrooms and fresh legumes. Drink now through 2008. Limited supply - Vintage change. Winery notes
