Sauvignon Gris

Big Table Farm

Wirtz Vineyard Pinot Gris 2018

The 2018 Big Table Farm Pinot Gris is sourced from fruit grown by eminent winemaker Brian O’Donnell of Belle Pente. The Pinot Gris was fermented on the skins, giving off a brilliant salmon color. Texturally elegant, the wine shows an exotic edge with ripe red raspberry and kumquat zest that collide with minerals and wild mushroom tones on the palate. Complex and highly unique, this one of a kind Pinot Gris is simply brilliant in its youth and will evolve well for a decade, picking up lovely tertiary aromatics and flavors as it ages.

Fall Release Fanucchi Wood Road Vineyard Trousseau Gris 2014

Enjoyed this while floating around a lake on a blow up raft, so I can’t provide formal notes, but it was darn good and better than I expected. Softer and rounder than I remembered. — 6 days ago

Le Petit Sauvignon 2015

Pre-Labor Day festivities with friends.

Sauvignon Blanc from Switzerland? More interesting than I would have expected, not as much acidity as your typical SB, from anywhere, but more complexity, more notes later...

24 Hour Update:
Nose has lime skin, lime flesh, white flowers, under-ripe tangerine, Paper Birch bark and dry earth.
Palate has semi-dried lime, under-ripe peach, wheat grass, granite pebbles, clean mountain stream with a squeeze of lime.
What an interesting wine, never thought Sauvignon Blanc would flourish at the intersection of Switzerland, Germany and France, a great wine experience!

Columbia Gorge Pinot Gris 2014

World’s best back wine label ever: basically, the winemaking is “meticulously select, press lightly and keep our hands off... All the other wonderful qualities of the wine, the rich aromatics, the minerality, the long, complex finish come out of the vineyard”. Pale yellow white, excellent clarity. Citrus and floral notes in nose. Lemongrass, lime peel flavors, rounded mouthfeel, good acidity, almost dry, minimal skin astringency. Minerality? Check. A hint of grapefruit on the finish. Better for sipping and canapés than a hearty meal. — 5 days ago

Patergarten Alsace Pinot Gris 2016

We love this wine. Previous notes apply, with hints of petroleum on the noise. Palate is soft and round with a relaxed acid profile. Finishes with lanolin and moderate sweetness. Just about to pull the trigger on some more. — 8 days ago

Rose Of Pinot Gris 2016

In a wicked good spot tonight, been almost two years since our last bottle. Raspberry notes are screaming along with strawberry and a brief squeeze of lime.
Last bottle, always the best one, of course 🤷‍♂️👍

Iris Vineyards

Willamette Valley Pinot Gris 2017

Good Pinot Gris in typical Oregon fashion. Light, crisp, fruit forward with stone fruit and lemon zest. Nice find. Hadn’t had this vineyard before. Located in Cottage Grove, Oregon (near Eugene), fruit sources from Chalice Estate and Confluence Vineyards. Dijon clones. 4500 cases produced. The 2016 vintage yielded a 91 score from Wine Enthusiast and an Editor’s Choice for wine. No doubt the 2017 will as well. Seek this one out to try. It’s amazing QPR, winery retail is $16. I picked it up for less at a Portland wine shop. — 11 days ago

Château Smith Haut Lafitte

Pessac-Léognan Blanc White Bordeaux Blend 2014

This is a delicious Sauvignon Blanc from Pessac-Léognan. Crisp and refreshing with nice weight and complexity.

Nose is gentle and elegant. The palate is crisp, dry and rich.

Showing citrus, lemons, spices, light wood, green apples, grapefruits and minerals.

Nice length on the finish with limes and minerals.

A Good quality wine. Definitely my favorite white Bordeaux so far.

This 5 year old is drinking very nicely now, and will continue to evolve in the next 5 years.

Needs 30 minutes to open up properly and show more complexity.

Robert Parker 93 points. 94 points Wine Spectator.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Sémillon and 5% Sauvignon Gris.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.
