Wine By Joe Pinot Gris 2015
100% Pinot Gris
WINEMAKER’S NOTES A multi-vineyard blend from the Willamette Valley with over 50% from our estate Seabreeze Vineyard. A layered aroma highlights Bartlett pear, citrus peel and sweet floral accents of banana and honeydew melon. The palate opens light with crisp acid followed by smooth mid-palate body and flavors of young stone fruit, green apple, lemon and lime. The finish is long with a pleasant ripe-fruit sweetness that supports juicy acid.
