Adelsheim Pinot Gris Willamette Valley 2010
The Pinot Gris's focal point has been pushed towards its primary fruit characteristics, with minimal interference of winemaking. We harvest somewhat late to ensure optimal ripeness and press gently in two stages. A variety of cultured yeasts, each of which adds a different flavor profile to the finished blend, for slow, cool fermentations to retain the primary fruit esters of the wine. Textural enhancement was provided by partial malolactic fermentation in a few of the lots, and by fermenting a small portion of the wine in older neutral barrels. The label of this wine features Ginny Adelsheim's portrait of her older sister, Susanna Kuo. A textile artist and researcher/writer with a focus on East Asian textiles, Susanna has a special interest in Japanese stencil resist dyeing. One of her pieces hangs in the south stairwell of Portland's Keller Auditorium.
