    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Elk Cove Vineyards Pinot Gris starts out with sweet aromatic fruits of the tropics; pineapple, guava and a touch of honeysuckle, hinting of springtime freshness, while also giving crispness on the palate with citrus and grapefruit. Yet true to the Elk Cove Vineyards' style, there is a rich mouthfeel to give a full and satisfying balanced finish.

    Drink this lovely white wine as an aperitif or with a variety of food pairings from salmon and main-course salads to Asian and Thai influenced dishes.

    The Willamette Valley has a suitable climate for this delicate grape variety—enough sunlight and warmth for ripening and cooler night temperatures to retain varietal character. To preserve the freshness, it is whole-cluster pressed, and then fermented at very cool temperatures in small stainless steel tanks, which accentuates aromatics and enhances the richness and viscosity. The fruit is hand-harvested from select hillside vineyards in the northern Willamette Valley. Our estate Pinot Gris is planted in a high-density format, which undergoes shoot and crop thinning for low yields.

    Elk Cove Pinot Gris is exactly what I'm looking for in Oregon PG - it matches lively acidity with rich mouthfeel. Elk Cove has both in perfect preportion - a smooth, silky, rich texture of sweet ripe fruits with that zing of acid to make it refreshing. Well done.
