2016 Vireton Pinot Gris
Golden yellow in the glass, this wine is effusive, with a fresh and vivid palate. The bouquet is full of enticing aromas of ripe green papaya, lime, freesia blossom and kiwi, while the palate exhibits a lively, bright mouthfeel with subtle flint and brackish notes and a lengthy finish.
This vintage, the fruit for our Vireton Pinot Gris was sourced from a small collection of Willamette Valley Pinot Gris vineyards.
Fruit for this bottling was hand harvested, whole cluster pressed and settled for 24 hours. Then, it was transferred to stainless steel tanks and fermented under temperature-controlled conditions with select Alsatian-style yeasts.
