Castle Rock Pinot Gris, Willamette Valley, 2009
Our Castle Rock Pinot Gris is produced from grapes grown in Oregon's Willamette Valley. Sheltered by the Cascade Mountains, this area is on the same latitude as France's Burgundy region, and it saw the first introduction of this grape to the new world a quarter century ago. Since then it has gained international recognition as one of the most prestigious appellations for this cool climate varietal. Our Pinot Gris is crisp and light with good texture and acidity, offering subtle floral aromas and delicate flavors of pear, peach, and apple. This versatile wine can be paired with many foods, but makes an especially fine accompaniment to fish, soups, vegetarian dishes and salads. Alc. 13.5% by vol.
