In 1970, David Lett produced five cases of the first Pinot gris in the New World. Aware of its potential, Lett expanded his acreage of Pinot gris until it made up half of Eyrie's production. Today, it is the most widely planted white variety in Oregon and the 2nd most popular white wine in the States. The Eyrie Vineyards' Pinot gris most closely resembles Alsatian versions. Fermented and aged in stainless steel sur lees for up to one year, Eyrie Pinot gris goes through 100% natural malo-lactic fermentation. Bone dry and medium-bodied with a nicely balanced acidity, Eyrie's 2007 Pinot gris shows complex varietal aromas and flavors, with a smooth yet crisp and refreshing finish.
