Pinot Gris

Pinot Gris Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle

Description: 2004 vintage continues what has strangely become almost routine up in Oregon – a very warm growing season. Thus the 2004 Elk Cove Vineyards Pinot Gris once again shows continuity of varietal expression and Elk Cove’s interpretation of it. This wine shows beautiful white flowers, such as honeysuckle, hinting of springtime freshness while also giving traditional notes of citrus and grapefruit. Yet true to the Elk Cove Vineyards’ style, there is richness in the mouthfeel to give a full and satisfying balanced finish. Drink this lovely white wine as an aperitif or with a variety of food pairings from salmon and main-course salads to Asian and Thai influenced dishes.

Varietal Definition
Pinot Grigio/Gris:
Pinkish-white variety producing a very crisp white wine. Grown in Oregon, the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, and more and more in California, it shows promise for other cool climates. Also known as Tokay d'Alsace in France, Rulander in Germany, and Pinot Grigio in Italy.
