Chehalem Three Vineyard Pinot Gris 2016
This 2016 version of Pinot Gris encompasses a flawlessly pristine vintage, picked at the peak of ripeness and acid balance, showing aromatic complexity and exuberance. There are yellow to white blossoms, juicy Asian pear and lifted spicy notes of ginger and white pepper on the nose. The palate is crisp, showing stone fruit, lemongrass and talc. With great acid tension, fleshiness and a viscous yet supple texture, this wine is perhaps reminiscent of a warm summer day cooling down to a light breezy night.
