2004 Pinot Gris Willamette Valley

2004 vintage continues what has strangely become almost routine up in Oregon – a very warm growing season. Thus the 2004 Elk Cove Vineyards Pinot Gris once again shows continuity of varietal expression and Elk Cove’s interpretation of it. This wine shows beautiful white flowers, such as honeysuckle, hinting of springtime freshness while also giving traditional notes of citrus and grapefruit. Yet true to the Elk Cove Vineyards’ style, there is richness in the mouthfeel to give a full and satisfying balanced finish. Drink this lovely white wine as an aperitif or with a variety of food pairings from salmon and main-course salads to Asian and Thai influenced dishes.
