Winemaker Notes

Pinot gris originated in Burgundy, like the other members of the Pinot family, and has had a long history all over Europe. Adelsheim Vineyard was one of the very first producers of this variety outside of Europe. With this wine, Adelsheim's 30th vintage, their experience shows - we've long been acknowledged as producing a reference standard for the "Oregon style". Crisp, bright flavors have always been the hallmark of Adelsheim Pinot gris. Green fruits with a layer of creaminess that lends a rich mouthfilling texture and long finish.

WW 91
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
Pinot Gris—also known as Pinot Grigio and typically regarded as a "value white wine" from the Veneto region of Italy—is one of the world's most confusing white wines. Is the grape more Burgundian? Alsatian? Or Veneto-like? Or is this Oregon's best white wine grape that the wine world has mostly overlooked? When I tasted the 2014 Adelsheim Pinot Gris recently, I was pleasantly surprised by its high quality. I will no longer lump Oregon Pinot Gris wines in with their counterpart “values” from the Veneto. This wine serves up aromas and flavors of dried peach skin and lively mineral notes. On the palate, it is crisp and lively. Looks like an excellent choice with Vietnamese imperial rolls.

One of Pinot Noir’s most successful New World outposts, the Willamette Valley is the largest and most important AVA in Oregon. With a continental climate moderated by the influence of the Pacific Ocean, it is perfect for cool-climate viticulture and the production of elegant wines.

Mountain ranges bordering three sides of the valley, particularly the Chehalem Mountains, provide the option for higher-elevation vineyard sites.

The valley's three prominent soil types (volcanic, sedimentary and silty, loess) make it unique and create significant differences in wine styles among its vineyards and sub-AVAs. The iron-rich, basalt-based, Jory volcanic soils found commonly in the Dundee Hills are rich in clay and hold water well; the chalky, sedimentary soils of Ribbon Ridge, Yamhill-Carlton and McMinnville encourage complex root systems as vines struggle to search for water and minerals. In the most southern stretch of the Willamette, the Eola-Amity Hills sub-AVA soils are mixed, shallow and well-drained. The Hills' close proximity to the Van Duzer Corridor (which became its own appellation as of 2019) also creates grapes with great concentration and firm acidity, leading to wines that perfectly express both power and grace.

Though Pinot noir enjoys the limelight here, Pinot gris, Pinot blanc and Chardonnay also thrive in the Willamette. Increasing curiosity has risen recently in the potential of others like Grüner Veltliner, Chenin blanc and Gamay.

This “white” variety is actually born out of a mutation of Pinot Noir and shows a unique rosy, purplish hue upon full ripeness. The grape boasts two versions of its name and two generally distinct styles: the crisp, Italian Pinot Grigio and the softer French Pinot Gris. Somm Secret—Given the color of its berries and aromatic potential, Pinot Grigio is commonly used to make "orange wines." An orange wine is a white wine made with fermentation on its skins (similar to red wine making), leading to n orange hued wine with ephemeral aromas and extra complexity.
