Belle Pente Willamette Valley Pinot Gris
Belle Pente Vineyard and Winery
From the winemaker:
We have always gravitated to a rich, ripe style of Pinot Gris inspired by the great wines of Alsace, and the warm 2014 growing season gave us exactly what we needed!
This is the first year that our Pinot Gris is 100% estate grown in our Belle Pente and Rivenwood vineyards, both in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. The marine sedimentary soils of Yamhill-Carlton tend to impart a compelling savory saline quality and stony minerality to frame the apple and pear flavors and aromas of the Pinot gris grape.
It is easy to enjoy on it's own, and there is not a dish on the planet that it won't compliment splendidly!
