Winemaker's Notes:

Eyrie has been setting the benchmark for American Pinot gris ever since their favorite winegrower, David Lett, planted the first New World vines in 1965. The tradition continues with the 2010 vintage. Bone dry and medium-bodied with a nicely balanced acidity, Eyrie's Pinot Gris shows complex varietal aromas and flavors, with a smooth yet crisp and refreshing finish.
My Notes:

About Eyrie:

The Eyrie Vineyards (eye-ree) was established by David and Diana Lett in 1966. Yamhill County's pioneer vineyard produced the Willamette Valley's first Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and the first Pinot Gris in America. The vineyards are located in the Dundee Hills, the winery in nearby McMinnville.
