Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 A to Z Oregon Pinot Gris shimmers in the glass with pear, ginger, almond and vanilla aromas. Juicy, bright and succulent on the attack, this wine showcases flavors of tangerine, melon, pineapple and wet stone. The wine is framed by ripe acidity giving classic Oregon Pinot Gris proportions and lift to the richness. The long finish slides effortlessly from the mid-palate with lingering impressions of tantalizing, pure, intense fruit.

About A to Z:

Founded in 2002, A to Z Wineworks is Oregon's fastest growing winery. The business model is simple: to produce and market Oregon's best wine values by concentrating on their core competencies of acquisition, blending and marketing.

A to Z has a bargain with other wineries from whom they source wines that they will not reveal their identities; component wines could be from any winery in Oregon from A to Z. This winery wanted a name that suggested that their wines are blended from many sources. A to Z builds their blends to craft balanced wines that aim to embody the essence of Oregon rather than reflect a specific single vineyard or A to Z style.
