Adelsheim Pinot Gris 2012
Adelsheim Vineyard | Newberg, Oregon
13.5% ABV

By Jessica Barger of Mason Street Grill

This well-known Oregon wine producer has their Pinot Gris made from some of the oldest vines in the Willamette AVA. The Adelsheims started their vineyard in 1972, inspired by a trip to Europe a year prior. Now they are onto their 29th vintage of this wine. Adelsheim’s Gris has a distinctive character that is very consistent, particularly since they carefully select grapes from nine different vineyards and they partially ferment (not age) some of the wine in old French Oak barrels—which gives texture rather than “oaky flavor” because the barrels’ strong influence has already been used. This allows some of the alcohol and water to evaporate, thus changing the viscosity and not the taste.

Color: Daybright golden grey
Nose: Slightly briny, mossy in an earthy way, with fruit flavors of green apple and super ripe pear at the very end
Palate: Sweet yet tart, like a green apple, and lemongrass. The delicate sweetness comes through mid-sip and has lots of honeydew melon softness with some salinity returning on the end of the finish. Old-world style, kind of like the Pinot Grigio from Graves, but still uniquely Oregonian.
