2015 Dundee Hills Pinot Gris
The 2015 Dundee Hills Pinot Gris comes entirely from fruit from our own Oracle Vineyard. Two-thirds of the vines that produced this wine are 39 years old. The hallmarks of the 2015 growing season are wonderfully intense aromatics and rich, weighty fruit. A long, warm summer produced ripe fruit and challenged us to pick when the acidity was still good. The juice was stainless steel fermented to maintain the freshness and clarity of the very subtle varietal character of Dundee Hills Pinot Gris.  We did not allow the wine to undergo a malo-lactic fermentation, preferring instead to accentuate the bright, crisp character of the fruit.  Lees contact during aging added weight and texture to the palate. The wine displays a variety of floral aromas, combined with white peach, a subtle hazelnut character, and a dollop of fresh ginger.  On the palate there is beautiful robust fruit and lively citrusy acidity, fleshed out with a talc/mineral note. A classic Willamette Valley Pinot Gris, the wine has plenty of weight on the palate from exceptional fruit concentration and crisp, refreshing acidity. With a long, clean finish, this wine is perfect with rich foods such as lobster and scallops, or other strongly flavored, spicy dishes. $18/bottle; $183.60/case.
