Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 Pinot Gris has a very bright, inviting clarity, with a slight yellowish green hue. The nose suggests pear, passion fruit, and mango. The palate reveals flavors of green apple candy, peaches, a focused, terse acidity, and a pleasant, long finish.

This is a fantastic wine with seafood, or for sipping in the heat of summer. As the wine warms from refrigerator temperature, the palate bulks up and becomes invitingly rich.

About Solena Estate:

After successful careers in the Oregon wine industry, the husband and wife team of Laurent Montalieu and Danielle Andrus Montalieu has created an exciting new family operated winery, Soléna Cellars. Soléna is the combination of the Spanish and French words "Solana" and "Solene" celebrating the sun and the moon, and the name that Laurent and Danielle, gave to their daughter.

Soléna Cellars began as a way to explore winemaking with other varietals grown in neighboring appellations while the family's young Domaine Danielle Laurent vineyard matured. Today Laurent and Danielle are producing Pinot Noir from their exciting estate vineyard in Oregon's Yamhill-Carlton appellation as well as Pinot Gris, Merlot, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from select sites throughout Oregon and Washington.
