The Pinot Gris is produced from LIVE Certified Sustainable Ponzi Aurora, Avellana and Estate Vineyards, as well as select vineyards from around the Willamette Valley. It offers complex aromatics of honeycomb and jasmine, daphne, lemongrass, white peppercorn and lime zest bound from the glass. The mouth follows with flavors of cara orange, kumquat and juicy pear. The acidity is brilliant and tamed with a touch of sweetness and a very slight phenolic tension in the finish.
Lightly spicy, this crisp young wine delivers just-ripe mixed citrus fruit. There are hints of jicama and white radish also, giving it a peppery finish. Just a touch of residual sugar (5 g/L) offsets some of the piercing acidity.
