2012 Pinot Gris Willamette Valley

The 2012 Elk Cove Vineyards Pinot Gris has sweet and unctuous aromatics while showing crispness on the palate with vibrant citrus and grapefruit. True to Elk Cove Vineyards’ style, a rich mouthfeel leads to 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.

“Light and sleek, with a satiny texture to the pear and floral flavors, lingering deftly and intently…”

2012 Pinot Gris: “Mouthwatering and brisk, this succulent gris has the scent of apple blossoms, its flavors giving the impression of a slice of crisp apple spritzed with lemon.  A summer refresher, or a  good pairing with petrale sole.”
