2010 Evesham Wood "Blanc du Puits Sec" Willamette Valley Pinot Gris-Gewürztraminer

SKU #1072374

A few years ago, Evesham Wood founder Russ Raney, sold the winery to the young Erin Nuccio, who had been working harvests with him for three years. Erin continues Russ's committment to quality in the vineyards and the bottle, and the 2010 Blanc de Puits Sec shows it. Produced entirely from the certified organic Le Puits Sec Vineyard, the wine is dominated by Pinot Gris, but lifted both aromatically and on the palate by Gewürztraminer (15%) and small amounts of Grüner, Kerner, Rieslaner, Pinot Blanc and Traminer. Not as spicy as previous vintages, this is a beautifully balanced, aromatic, dry white wine with wonderfully refreshing acidity. Try it with your favorite spicy dish.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

Oregon

- Highly touted for its Pinot Noirs, Oregon is part of the up-and-coming winemaking industry in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Most of Oregon is directly affected by the climate coming off of the Pacific Ocean, giving it mild winters and wet summers. This makes it a difficult place to ripen grapes, but some say that the harder grapes have to struggle, the more complex they will turn out to be. Chardonnay and Pinot Gris are two important and successful grapes grown in Oregon.
