Seven different vineyard blocks on our home vineyard contribute to this wine's complexity, texture, and character. The 2016 Pinot Gris is a lovely example of the great balance that we can achieve in the Northern Willamette Valley with this variety. It emerges with aromatics of pear, Meyer lemon zest and fresh mint. It opens up on the palate with a silky and light texture to offer a foundation of stone fruits, melon and bright citrus, with zippy acidity. It finishes with stony minerality and white pepper, with lush and rich texture. As people have come to expect from our Pinot Gris, the 2016 is an excellent food wine that pairs well with anything from salads and seafood to grilled chicken and light meats.

We just had this two days ago and saved a bit to see what it would be like after 24 hours in a 52 degree cellar. Both days were "leaf" biodynamic days. AMAZING wine. Certainly one of the very best examples of Willamette Valley Pinot Gris we have tasted (and we've been drinking WV Pinot Gris since the early 1980's!). The second day, this wine picked up a little weight and viscosity to go with the stone fruits. Buy a ton of this and watch it develop for a few years. We opened the 2015 later and it also was exceptional and just a bit more revealing (age contributed to this I think). Bravo!
