Winemaker's Notes:

The REX HILL Willamette Valley Pinot Gris harmonizes the rich, ripe fruit from the 2009 vintage with stunning focus and acidity. The nose is a complex bloom of fresh orange, pineapple, and minerals. On the palate, the wine is succulent and juicy but bright with Kaffir lime, mango and lemon blossom. Lingering high notes of spiced ginger tea move seamlessly into a clean, bright crisp finish. Wonderful right now but will gain in dimension and complexity over the next five years.
