Winemaker's Notes

Pinot Gris has rapidly become a popular grape in the Northwest. Known as Pinot Grigio in Italy, the grape makes a refreshing white with plenty of fruit character. It's named for its characteristic "gris" or grayish color but actually the grapes take on a pink and even purple caste as they ripen. Our 2000 Pinot Gris has up front aromas of melon, peach and guava, and the flavors are similar, with loads of ripe apple and peach and a hint of vanilla. The wine has good weight and structure on the palate. The winemakers suggest pairing the 2000 Pinot Gris with poached halibut or homemade pizza with garlic, olive oil and Niçoise olives.

Alcohol: 13.5% by volume
