Winter’s Hill Estate 2013 Pinot Gris, Dundee Hills, $17

By on August 7, 2015

Winter's Hill Estate-2013-Pinot Gris BottleThe 2013 harvest was a major challenge throughout much of Oregon because of the torrential rains in the second half of September, and the Gladharts chose to wait until Oct. 9 before picking the Pinot Gris off their Dundee Hills estate. Knowledge is exemplified in this crisp and floral example of Oregon Pinot Gris, which starts with a nose of yellow grapefruit, starfruit, lemon and lemongrass. The palate yields flavors of Asian pear, starfruit, honeydew melon and apricot, backed by spritzy lemon/lime acidity and a food-friendly farewell of apricot pit.
