Winemaker Notes

This is the most refined we can make Pinot Gris. Using Alsace as a standard, we seek weight and complexity to make this more than a simple white. This is a true reserve wine, the fruit divided at harvest after full ripeness is achieved, with the reserve portion going through barrel fermentation in neutral oak with long lees contact - the wine is concentrated, well textured, with rich and creamy flavors and a long finish. In 1997, there is a mineral nose progressing to lime and honeyed fruit (golden apple, pear, peach), with a bright acidity, light ginger, warm apple and nut flavors on the palate.

Image of winery
With two vineyards on either end of Chehalem Ridge and one in the Dundee Hills, Chehalem is dedicated to reflecting as purely as possible what the vineyard has produced. With minimal processing and without compromising great fruit, Chehalem wines promise good ageing but are very drinkable young. Production quantities of all Chehalem wines are limited, to assure ultimate winemaking control.
