Nose

The Joel Gott 2019 Oregon Pinot Gris has aromas of Meyer lemon, Key lime and pear with notes of peach blossoms.

Palate

On the palate, the wine opens with bright acidity and citrus notes followed by a smooth, elongated mid-palate with stone fruit flavors and a long, clean balanced finish.

Harvest

The 2019 growing season was a cooler, more traditional growing season for the Willamette Valley. The cooler vintage allowed for the fruit to experience a longer hang time therefore developing more delicate aromas and flavors resulting in a brighter, traditional Pinot Gris. The fruit was harvested in October at night and very early in the morning to preserve the classic freshness, delicacy and flavor of Oregon Pinot Gris.

Winemaking

Following harvest, the fruit was hand sorted and gently pressed to retain their delicate aromatics.

Aging

A long, cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks preserved the varietal characteristics of the fruit. 100% Stainless Steel Barrel
