Teutonic Pinot Gris 2023, Willamette Valley, Oregon

Barnaby and Olga Tuttle’s Portland-based Teutonic Wine Company, is an idiosyncratic outfit focused on German and Alsatian wine styles. And obsessively focused on terroir – they now collect grapes before harvest from each vineyard in order to start a native yeast culture for each fermentation. This Pinot Gris is crisp and refreshing with fine mineral flavors that the vines absorb from the deep established roots. Golden pale in color, apple, pear, lime and lemon zest on the nose.
