|Producer||The Four Graces|
The 2021 Pinot Gris was bottled on Valentine’s Day after minimal stainless steel aging to preserve the aromatics and freshness to create a lively and crisp wine. Beautiful bright aromas of citrus fruit, fresh lime and wild strawberry mingle in the glass with a hint of struck flint. The palate continues with grapefruit, fresh citrus and lime zest, followed by a touch of quince and wet stone, which leads into a vibrant lingering acidity.
The Four Graces is dedicated to the thriving varietals of the Willamette Valley, most notably Pinot Noir, as well Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc. Our three sustainably farmed estate vineyards are located in the Dundee Hills, Yamhill-Carlton and Van Duzer Corridor AVAs: all distinctly different which allow each of our wines to speak to its terroir.
Bright aromas of flower, whole melon, marzipan and hazelnuts lead to beautifully balanced fruit flavors that show depth and layering while remaining light on their feet. Tropical notes emerge on the lengthy finish. -S.P.S.
