Bethel Heights Pinot Gris 2017
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
This is an exceptional Pinot Gris in every way, starting with ripe round fruit. The deep gold color introduces a lush core of peach, apricot and papaya, along with a light hint of honey. There are ample supporting acids to nicely balance it out, but the overall ripeness and forward-fruit flavors suggest drinking this beauty now.
From vines planted in the 1990s, the 2017 Pinot Gris features aromas of Red Delicious apples, baked pear, nutty touches and faint white spring blossoms. Light to medium-bodied, it's very crisp and refreshing in the mouth with wonderful apple flesh notes, finishing with just a touch of texture and lovely floral hints. 500 cases produced.
Crisp and zesty, with pear and spiced nut flavors. Drink now. 599 cases made.
