Willakenzie Pinot Gris Pinot Grigio Oregon Willamette Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Because the goal is to produce white wines that fully express the characteristics of the fruit this Pinot Gris is made entirely in stainless steel with no malolactic fermentation and no barrel aging. The wine is made in the Alsatian style: lush rich and mouth filling.

WillaKenzie Estate:
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.

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

Wine Tasting NotesExcellent clarity and an appealing green-gold color create a pleasant first impression in the glass. Aromas of peach, pear, melon and pineapple are complemented by subtle floral tones including clover and fruit tree blossom. The flavors follow the aromas with the addition of apricot and apple. The mouthfeel is round and full with a crisp attack, sweeter mid-palate and nice acidity returning on the long finish. The wine will cellar well at least 3 years. Enjoy by itself as an aperitif, with prawns in a cream sauce over angel hair pasta, hazelnut crusted halibut, or salmon marinated in the wine and topped with sprigs of rosemary during grilling. Serve well chilled.
