Van Duzer Pinot Gris Willamette Valley Estate 2008

External Review by Fame Wine and Tobacco:

Light yellow. Fresh peach and melon aromas are underscored by white flowers and chalky minerality. Juicy, finely etched orchard fruit and melon flavors offer refreshing energy and finish with good lift and cut.

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
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

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.
