2016 Keeler Estate Vineyard Pinot gris

Eola-Amity Hills
Willamette Valley
Oregon

14.1% alcohol

It’s not often you find a Pinot gris aged for 18 months in oak (15% new and the rest neutral). While more commonly done with Chardonnay, I hope you will try this wine for the amazing texture the oak (and lees) lend to the juice. Plus the entire estate is biodynamic, creating a healthy ecosystem filled with raptors, bees, flowers, ducks and millions of beneficial insects.

Color: Lemon chiffon yellow

Aromas: Notes of honey, kiwi and starfruit

Flavors: This wine has incredible texture, with flavors of Asian pears and starfruit. The acidity is softened by its time in oak and there are hints of salinity before finishing with notes of wildflower honey.

Food pairing suggestions: Fish tacos, salad rolls, aged gouda cheese, crab mac & cheese.

SRP $28
