The state of Oregon in the USA has built up a great reputation for Pinot Noir, producing world class wines, with Pinot Gris its secondary grape – achieving the complexity and depth of flavour for which its Alsace counterpart is famous. Dick Erath is one of the original wine pioneers of Oregon, who travelled west coast America in the 1960’s to find the best vineyard sites, eventually deciding upon the Williamette Valley. His extensive studies of the area proved successful in helping to produce high quality wines for over 40 years, and having worked with the Pinot Gris varietal for over 20 years, its style is pure, lively and approachable.
Inviting apple and lemon aromas with peach and melon flavours on the palate are balanced well with refreshing acidity. Chill right down and enjoy with salads, fish and light Thai dishes – a perfect wine for summer.
