Montinore Pinot Gris 2017, Willamette Valley, Oregon

Seven different Pinot Gris vineyard blocks contribute to this wine’s complexity and character. Bright fruit and a clean, dry finish. Fresh pineapple and passion fruit enliven further with hints of bay leaf and almond extract. It opens up on the palate with a silky and light texture to offer a foundation of stone fruits, melon and bright citrus, with zippy acidity. It finishes with stony minerality and white pepper, with lush and rich texture. Established in 1982, Montinore Estate is a 210-acre Demeter Certified Biodynamic® and Stellar Certified Organic estate that lies at the northern end of the Willamette Valley appellation and along the east-facing slope of the Coastal Range foothills in Oregon.
