Van Duzer Pinot Gris Willamette Valley Estate 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"The fullness of fruit and mineral notes clearly mark Oregon Pinot Gris as the more distinguished cousin to an Italian Pinot Grigio." Winery notes"Here in Oregon, we vineyard owners have narrowed our sights to those grape varietals that express themselves fully on our soils and cool-weather growing conditions. Pinot Noir flourishes in our Willamette Valley vineyard and has become our flagship varietal. Sprightly Pinot Gris makes a strong showing as "the other Oregon wine." When you sample Van Duzer Estate Wines, the essence of our cooled-by-the-wind site becomes apparent in the purity of fruit flavors and refreshing balance. The good acid balance in our wines makes them ideal partners for food dishes, but they are equally appealing on their own."

Van Duzer Vineyards is the first in the Willamette Valley to benefit from the cool Pacific breezes that flow nightly through the Van Duzer Corridor to the interior of the valley. The Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris planted on the vineyards in the foothills of the Van Duzer Corridor flourish in the cool-weather growing conditions where they develop a purity of fruit flavor, complexity and pleasing balance. Located on a scenic hilltop amidst 82 acres of vines, the family estate winery practices sustainable farming and has been endorsed by internationally recognized LIVE (Low Impact Viticulture and Enology) and Salmon Safe. Pinot Noir is Van Duzer’s signature wine. A variety of Pinot Noir clonal varieties and microclimates allows Van Duzer Vineyards to produce a multi-dimensional estate Pinot Noir and a handful of limited-production Block Designates of singular personality. Pinot Gris is Oregon’s other wine of note, a white wine that Van Duzer Vineyards makes in a crisp, dry style particularly well suited to a white wine. Van Duzer Vineyard’s new eco-friendly winery is one of the most modern winemaking facilities in Oregon. Tasting room and picnic grounds welcome visitors to the site, located just one hour south of Portland on the Hwy 99W Wine Road. Read less
