Rainwater, lemon peel, minerals, pomelo. Nice light aromas.
Wanted something a bit more chewy on the white side that wasn’t a dry Riesling or Sancerre or a Chenin, so I went with a tried and true Chardonnay that doesn’t rely on oak treatment like a mamma’s boy.
Originally turned off by those Chardonnay’s, it’s been a while since I ventured out to this varietal again. Glad I did.
Well-rounded, balanced, slight effervescence, acidity doesn’t fall off, full and dry at once. Refreshing and savory. Wonderful. Love to be proved wrong. I always went the Chablis route, but this bottle proves to be a ballet on the palate. — 17 days ago
Petrol nose at first. Great complexity and evolution. Glossy, slightly gluey texture that coated the entire mouth, front to back. Acidic with sweet undertones. Pickle juice! — 3 months ago
Solid Pinot Noir. This wine needs to be open 90 minutes before consuming. There are some off flavors when first opened, but they disappear with oxygen and the wine settles down into a classic feminine Pinot Noir. An excellent choice from Oregon, and ready to drink now with sufficient aeration. — 5 days ago

The Eyrie Vineyards, Pinot Gris, from the Dundee Hills of Oregon. Vintage 2017. ABV 12.5%.
Bright citrus and tart melon and cantaloupe notes with some salinity and wet stone influences. Very refreshing and youthful.
Easy to pair with food, we have paired it with roasted bok choy, aubergine, and brown jasmine rice. It goes nicely and doesn’t compete with the tamari and sesame flavors. — 3 months ago
