Tasting Note: Complex, layered Pinot Gris from Oregon, herbaceous on the nose, apricot in the mouth and with a rich final flavour of peaches and cream.
Food Matching: A superb match for mildly spicy Indian and Thai curries.
Vineyard: Northwest of Forest Grove, in the foot-hills of the Coastal Range mountains. This vineyard was planned on its own roots in silty clay loams of the Tualatin River Valley. The block sits at 350 feet elevation with a southwest open exposure. The vineyard is dry-farmed and sustainably farmed by the Risdall Family.
Vinification: Whole cluster bunches were foot-trodden in the picking bins to allow for skin contact with the juice. A low pressure pressing was made and the juice settled for 36 hours. Fermentation was carried out in one 500L French Oak puncheon and one 1200L stainless steel tank. The puncheon was speciﬁcally sourced for its 3-year-old seasoned, tight-grain wood that was water-washed during the bending stage, thus enhancing the wine structure and depth without overt barrel flavour inﬂuence. The vessels were blended to create a ﬁnal harmony of the two styles.
