Willakenzie Estate Pinot Gris Willamette Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"Lush and silky in the mouth, this wine has great intensity and balance with enough acidity to make it especially compatible with Asian foods such as curries, white fish including halibut and sole, seafood bisque and chilled melon soup. Drink it now and over the next five years, and serve it moderately chilled." Winery notes

Willakenzie Estate’s life began in 1991 when founder Bernard Lacroute purchased a cattle ranch. This 420 acre ranch, located in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, was named after the Willakenzie soil that breathes life into their vines. In 2000, an additional 95 acres of land, this time in the Dundee Hills, was obtained, and it was named the Jory Hills vineyard after the Jory soil type. In total, there are about 105 acres under vine at the original Yamhill location, with another 25 acres at the Jory Hills vineyard. Two thirds of the grapes planted at the original vineyard are Pinot Noir, while the remainder is other Pinot grapes, along with Chardonnay. Willakenzie’s winery was built in 1995, right as their first harvest was coming to a close. Today, about 20,000 cases of wine are produced annually, thanks to the hard work of winemaker Thibaud Mandet. Read less
