Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 A to Z Pinot Gris leads with bright aromas of tropical fruits (lemon, lime, lychee, mango, passion fruit and kiwi) as well as melon, ginger, lemongrass and wet stone. Succulent and juicy on the attack, the mid-palate is drenched with peach, spiced pear, baked apple, quince, hibiscus, white flower and mineral flavors. On the finish, the acidity wraps up the wine with a clean, fresh palate and lasting impression of a wine with great purity and typicity balanced by some richness and depth.

About A to Z:

A to Z Wineworks is Oregon's top-selling wine brand, consistently honored for delicious, food-friendly wines which offer superior value. Founded in 2002 by two wine industry couples, the Hatchers and the Francis Tannahills, the brand has steadily grown from the first vintage of 2,600 cases of Pinot Noir.

A to Z has worked with more than 100 vineyards across the state, maintaining diverse sourcing both to mitigate regional vintage variations and to add complexity and depth to each cuvee. With a team of four winemakers and two viticulturists, A to Z possesses more Oregon winemaking experience than any other winery, and has twice had its Pinot Noir recognized on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list. In 2014, A to Z became a certified B Corporation, having demonstrated deep commitment to social and environmental sustainability, and was recognized as being a Best for the World B Corp two years in a row.

A to Z remains true to the dual mission of offering Aristocratic Wines at Democratic Prices, blending one cuvee each vintage of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay Pinot Gris, Riesling and Rose that deliver the Essence of Oregon.
