Winemaker's Notes:

A very floral, fruity, and surprisingly rich Gris! This wine has flashy gardenia and jasmine flowers upfront, with pink grapefruit, lychee, pineapple, and fresh peach in its fruit-basket. The palate is pretty and mouth-filling, with layers of sweet fruit, slate, tangy acid and an amazing breadth and length that lingers after the wine is gone. A great pair for Thai food!

Blend: 100% Pinot Gris

About Chehalem:

With two vineyards on either end of Chehalem Ridge and one in the Dundee Hills, Chehalem is dedicated to reflecting as purely as possible what the vineyard has produced. With minimal processing and without compromising great fruit, Chehalem wines promise good ageing but are very drinkable young. Production quantities of all Chehalem wines are limited, to assure ultimate winemaking control.
