Cristom Pinot Gris Willamette Valley 2016

Article number: 9053
Availability: In stock

Cristom has been producing a single expression of estate-grown Pinot Gris since 1996 with just over 5 acres of Pinot Gris vines planted on a gentle east-facing slope in the southern Willamette Valley’s Eola-Amity Hills. The vines were planted at the lowest elevation on the property greeting visitors at the driveway and rising from 200 feet to 350 feet. This block is distinctive at the estate because it’s entirely planted over ancient flood deposits known as Missoula Flood silts and marine sediments, greatly impacting the growth and vigor of the vines as well as the ripening of the fruit. The 2016 Pinot Gris offers a gorgeous lifted floral and citrus-tinged character elevated by zesty, mineral-driven focus and a distinctive creamy finish that makes it a versatile partner on the dinner.
