    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine is a great example of a crisp and bright style of pinot gris. Exhibiting aromas of asian pear, honeydew and citrus blossom, it is overtly fruity yet still complex for this wine variety. The flavors of tangy lime, pear and starfruit linger on the exceptionally long finish. A great "warm weather" wine, it goes with simple appetizers and a wide assortment of seafood any time of the year.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This racy gris tastes like biting into a crisp apple. It leads with scents of camellia blossoms, elegant and cool. Its green apple flavors show impressive energy and drive, with a talc-like texture and a fine, dusty stone finish that lasts. Ideal with roast pork and herbed potatoes.

    Summer and Benton Lane Pinot Gris paired perfectly. Great wine making lent a perfect spirit to my weekends...buying more for winter seafood pairings...Highly recommended.

    This was liked least over King Estate or WillaKenzie Pinot Gris. We were surprised.

    I prefer my Pinot Gris to have more body - this was too watery for my taste, although it developed a little more flavor with time.

    One of the best Pinot Gris for the money. Very smooth and crisp. Doesn't get much better than that.

    Tried this for the first time being curious about an Oregon wine. This wine is cool, crisp, clean and delicious. Light and perfect for a summer evening!

    Excellent wine that is light yet full of flavor. Great with starters for a meal or just sipping on the porch in the summer

    This is a great Pinot Gris from Oregon. Had it in a restaurant and then tracked it down. Really enjoyable, if you are a light drinker.
