Del Rio Vineyard Estate
2020 Pinot Gris
A beautiful traditional Oregon Pinot Gris that will you have you wanting another sip.
2020 Pinot Gris – Our 100% estate grown Pinot Gris is a beautiful and elegant wine. Crisp and fragrant, this Pinot Gris will entice you back for more.
The wine begins with desirable aromas of a crisp green apple, a hint of tropical fruit and a splash of honeysuckle. The enticing bouquet is followed by a complex palate where the vivid acidity is balanced by a creamy round mouthfeel. Drink now for its freshness and fragrance or age for the upcoming complexity and creamy development.
Our Pinot Gris is sourced from block 7 and block 10, a blend of young and old vines and harvested in the cool hours just before the sunrise. It is then gently pressed with 100% fermented in stainless steel tanks and 1% undergoing malolactic fermentation. The wine is then aged on its lees for eight months to develop a nice balance of complexity. The final stage is a light filtration before being bottled.
South facing, our Rogue Valley Vineyard Estate is located at the northern end of the Rogue Valley. With elevations ranging from 700 to 1800 feet, the primarily ancient volcanic and alluvial fan soils provide well drained, nutrient rich soils which are ideal for growing premium wine grapes.
With great structure and acidity the Pinot Gris is the perfect partner to many dishes. Start your meal off with a bite of creamy brie, or enjoy a spicy ceviche, then sink into the main course and pair the Pinot Gris with lemon butter scallops or a juicy roasted herb chicken dish. Use as a diverse dinner partner in the kitchen or simply pour a glass and savor each sip.
