Winemaker's Notes:

The Firesteed Pinot Gris offers aromas of citrus, honeysuckle, melon and pear that continue to evolve in the glass. Each sip starts out light, fruity and refreshing, then develops richness as hit of toffee lingers with spice on the finish.

Alcohol: 12.9% by volume

About Firesteed:

Firesteed Cellars is located in the heart of Oregon’s Willamette Valley in the Eola Hills region. Through long term contracts, Firesteed sources grapes from all the major viticultural appellations in Oregon including: the Willamette Valley, the Umpqua Valley, the Rogue Valley of western Oregon and the Walla Walla Valley in eastern Oregon, in addition to the 90 acres of vineyards that surround the winery. In 2006 we began to develop our 200 acre Erratic Oaks vineyard just 6 miles west of Rickreall.

Firesteed Cellars is currently the third largest winery in Oregon and Oregon's largest producer of Pinot Noir.

The wines of Firesteed Cellars display distinctive varietal character, and consistently 'over deliver' in terms of value for the price. In winemaking we strive to have the fruit character be the "star" of our wines. Firesteed seeks to produce wines that are balanced and elegant with aging potential for the reds.
