Yamhill Valley Vineyards Pinot Gris 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

Grapes were hand-picked and delivered to the crush pad where they were meticulously hand sorted, de-stemmed and pressed right away. Juice was settled overnight, and then racked and inoculated. Slow, cool fermentation encouraged a full bouquet to accompany complex flavors. The finished wine was kept cold during aging to prevent malo-lactic conversion, which helps to retain the bright, fresh style of Pinot Gris that we love.

Yamhill Valley Vineyards is located on a 150 acre estate in the rolling foothills of Oregon's Coast Range Mountains, one hour southwest of Portland in the Willamette Valley. The heart of our wine making is dedicated to Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc. We believe that the distinctive, rich character of our wines is created in the vineyard and reaches full potential through the timely application of attentive wine making practices. While keenly aware of traditional methods, we are committed to exploring new technologies and innovative techniques. Since our first vintage in 1983 our wines have consistently won top honors in tastings and judgings across the nation. Our 1983 Pinot Noir was the first place preference in the famous Wine Center in New York City. From our beginning we have been stubbornly dedicated to the pursuit of a character that is distinctively Oregon and distinctively Yamhill Valley. Our goal is to bring forth from this unusual and exciting property the finest possible expression of its intensity, charm and uniqueness. We are family owned and operated, and every wine that we produce is estate grown and bottled.  Read less

Light, fruity aromas of peach and green apple with an oat straw note adding a bit of creaminess. White peach, tart apple and pear on the palate, a zesty mid palate and a cool breezy finish, this is fruit forward, flavorful and refreshing.



Tasting Notes:

Aromatics of freshly baked lemon bars and white jasmine permeate your senses, inviting a sip that delivers round peach compote notes, alongside a vivacious texture sprinkled with fruit flavors reminiscent of lychee and blood orange flavors. Perfect for the joy seeking epicurean to imbibe on while seeking or celebrating sunshine scattered days.
