Solena Pinot Gris 2009
Inviting bright clear color with a touch of green hues. The nose is sweet and floral with notes of orange blossom, vanilla, honeysuckle and graham crackers. Juicy exotic fruits are adding to the taste with flavors of lemon and passion fruit then lingers with white pear and finishes with a crisp citrucy, almost mineral character, that shows its 100% Willamette Valley origin. Very mouthwatering, it is the perfect pre-meal entertainer.
We used fruit from several sites throughout the Willamette Valley including; Olsen Vineyard, ElvenGlade Vineyard,Kraemer Vineyard, Bailey Vineyard and McLain Vineyard.This wide range of vineyard sites across the AVAs offers a variety of flavors and structures from which we can create the best, most balanced blend. We followed viticulture practices that allowed us to minimize the use of pesticides and materials that could jeopardize the life of the soil. Each vineyard site was closely monitored as harvest approached, and the picking date was chosen based on taste.
