2013 Van Duzer Estate Willamette Valley Pinot Gris

13.2% alc., pH 3.23, TA 0.74, 2,100 cases, $18, screwcap. Released April 2014. Clones 146 and 152. Whole cluster pressed, slow and cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks and aged on lees. · Pale yellow color and clear in the glass. The nose is really captivating with effusive aromas of peach, melon and mango. Crisp, light and refreshing, with a mix of tropical fruit, pear, and peach flavors that are vivid. Slightly creamy on the palate with a stony minerality in the background, and a thirst-quenching finish. A superb food wine. Score: 92. Reviewed June 24, 2014
