SKU #1377893 Wine Enthusiast

 This wine was cofermented with Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Muscat. The aromas are compelling, with notes of freshly cut apple, petroleum jelly, honeysuckle, peach and pear. There's a beautiful sense of lightness, texture and freshness to the fruit flavors that linger on the finish. The balance is exquisite. *Best Buy* (SS)  (10/2018)

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "In this Pinot Grigio the Ancient Lakes AVA dominates and sets the tone for the blend. Riesling from the legendary Art Denhoed vineyard lifts aromas and brings a racy quality. Muscat from the Upland Vineyard in the Yakima Valley brings an exotic depth of fruit, while Sauvignon Blanc from the Sunset Vineyard in the Ancient Lakes brings some citrus and savory elements. The result gives gorgeous aromas leading with hay, grapefruit, lychee, licorice, and summer flowers with an underlying flinty minerality. This all carries straight into a surprisingly broad palate despite the tension and the firm acid backbone. Pinot Grigio 75%, Sauvignon Blanc 13%, Riesling 10%, Muscat 2%."

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Pinot Gris

- Also known as Pinot Gris in France, where it originated as a mutation of Pinot Noir. The berries can vary in color from yellowish to bluish-violet producing wines that range from white to slightly pink. The most successful wines from the grape come from the Collio in Friuli (Northeast Italy), where the wines are light- to medium-bodied, crisp, dry and, because of their high acidity, complementary to the region's foods like speck, Prosciutto di San Daniele and polenta. In Alsace, where the grape takes a back seat to more popular varietals like Gew├╝rztraminer and Riesling, it is generally rich and honeyed. Other successful plantings of Pinot Grigio exist in Austria, Germany, Hungary and Romania, with even smaller amounts planted in British Columbia, Australia, New Zealand and California.
Country:

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:

Washington

- Washington has become one of the most important wine producing states in the United States, and development continues to grow rapidly. In 1969, when California was exploding as a wine producer, Washington had only two wineries, but by 2000 that number had passed 100. Most of Washington's grape crop goes to uses other than wine. Merlot and Chardonnay have been the most successful in Washington. It's interesting to note that Washington's prime wine regions are located at 46┬░ north, along the same latitude as the legendary French wine districts of Bordeaux and Burgundy. During the summer, Washington averages more than two hours more sunlight each day compared to California.
