2014 Pinot Gris

Price: $15

Tasting Notes:

If you have had our Pinot Gris before, then you are in for a familiar treat.  If you haven’t, get ready for a ride that is scantily clad, but not smutty!  Notes of spiced Asian pear and citrus on the nose transition to a bright and fruit forward palate.  The full, rich texture in combination with the tropical flavors trick you into experiencing a perceived sweetness, which makes this wine pair beautifully with slightly spicy dishes.  From our family to yours, cheers!

Vineyard:

Our Pinot Gris is grown, produced and bottled at Yamhill Valley Vineyards. We are the oldest winery and the second oldest vineyard in what has recently been recognized as the McMinnville AVA. The unique thing about this subregion of the Willamette Valley is that eroded marine sedimentary soils that dominate many of the vineyard blocks on this site.

Vintage:

2014 was an early year from the start, bud break happened in mid-April.  A warm spring supported vine growth in preparation for flowering and fruit set, which were both earlier than usual as well.  The vineyard manager and crew took extra care to pull leaves during this very vigorous growing season to keep disease stress down and it certainly paid off, the fruit came in clean and ripe.  2014 is fondly referred to as “the big and beautiful vintage” by YVV insiders.  The hot and long growing season allowed us to have higher yields than usual while still delivering gorgeous quality fruit.  

Winemaking:

Grapes were hand-picked and delivered to the crush pad where they were meticulously hand sorted, de-stemmed and pressed right away.  Juice was settled overnight, and then racked and inoculated.  Slow, cool fermentation encouraged a full bouquet to accompany complex flavors.  The finished wine was kept cold during aging to prevent Malo-lactic conversion, which helps to retain the bright, fresh style of Pinot Gris that we love.
