Montinore Pinot Gris Willamette Valley 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

It is very aromatic with notes of fresh ripe pear, yellow apple and a pleasant floral/herbal accent. On the palate it bursts into flavors of ripe honeydew melon with hints of mango overlaying ripe apple and pear characteristics. The long finish is dry, fresh and crisp with a sweet/tart apple essence and distinct mineral qualities.

Very nice basic Pinot Gris. Light and clean. Would pair well with light cheeses, salads, seafood, white fish et cetera.

Light and crisp and somewhat sophisticated. Very clean finish and the aromas of tobacco, hay and hard tree fruit. Flavors get muddied easily when it gets warm. Pairings: Fish maybe? Salad

Montinore's Pinot Gris vines are planted in the cool northernmost area of Oregon's Willamette Valley, resulting in a brighter, crisper style of wine that shines with fresh oysters and other shellfish.

Bright and juicy, brimming with peach, pear and melon fruit. Lingers with beautiful focus on the well-framed finish. A big upgrade for this winery. Drink now.

The cooler growing season in 2007 produced white wines with great aromatics and a bright fresh character. Our 07 Pinot Gris is no exception. It is very aromatic with notes of fresh ripe pear yellow apple and a pleasant floral/herbal accent. On the palate it bursts into flavors of ripe honeydew melon with hints of mango overlaying ripe apple/pear character. The long finish is dry fresh and crisp with a sweet/tart apple essence and distinct mineral qualities. Winery Notes.

Peach-skin color. Smoky melon and apricot on the nose, with a slow-building musky yellow plum quality. Fleshy pit fruit flavors coat the palate and become more lively with air, picking up lime and exotic cured meat qualities. A touch warm on the finish but this possesses easy appeal and would be good with full-flavored foods.
