We’re very pleased but not at all surprised to see our 2015 Pinot Gris show up on Wine Spectator’s prestigious list of the 100 Top Values of 2016. Our Pinot Gris has long been a favorite on lists of highly rated yet affordable white wines. We’re extra proud to see this wine represent Oregon in the category of Rich Whites, a category dominated by old world wines:
“Chardonnay tends to define this category of riper, fuller whites, yet there are many other wines from a diverse array of regions whose rich, lush flavors are nicely balanced by brightness, vibrancy and structure. Portuguese whites have come on particularly strong in recent years, showcasing the country’s indigenous grapes in distinctive versions, while New World examples such as Oregon Pinot Gris and South African Chenin Blanc are expanding the map.”
Spectator describes our 2015 Pinot Gris as “Vivid and expansive, this white features tangy pear and cantaloupe flavors that play against hints of lime.”
