(2013 Vintage) In a warm spring and the earliest bloom in 25 years set the stage for our earliest harvest ever, beginning in Southern Oregon's Rogue Valley on September 13th and a week later in the comparatively cooler Willamette Valley. Excellent weather continued throughout picking, wrapping up on October 7th. By blending several vineyard sources and regions and avoiding heavy-handed winemaking techniques we hope to achieve a balanced wine focused on the abundant varietal fruit character of this classic grape. The Firesteed Piot Gris' Pear blossom and Crenshaw melon aromas meld with flavors of tropical fruit and citrus. Mouthwatering and enticing, its bright acidity and broad texture entwine throughout the wine's lingering finish.
