(From 2012 Vintage) It offers both great racy fruit and the kind of lush texture that makes Pinot Gris so delicious. This is the essence of Oregon Pinot Gris.
(From 2011 Vintage) Pinot gris originated in Burgundy, like the other members of the Pinot family, and has had a long history all over Europe. In recent times, versions from Alsace and northern Italy have been the best known. Oregon winegrowers introduced Pinot gris to New World viticulture and in 44 years the variety has become the principal white wine of Oregon. Adelsheim Vineyard was one of the very first producers of this variety outside of Europe. With this wine, our 30th vintage, our experience shows – we’ve long been acknowledged as producing a reference standard for the “Oregon style”.
