Raptor Ridge Pinot Gris 2018

$18.00

This is a lovely 100% Pinot Gris from a top winery from the Willamette Valley in Oregon. The wine is bright, ripe fruits, pear, juicy melon, crisp and palate-cleansing acidity with flavors of lemon and fresh grated ginger. A round mouthfeel with a little weight on the palate distinguishes this style from Pinot Grigio and tells you this will be a great food wine.

Raptor Ridge specializes in hand-crafted wines from individual vineyards throughout the Willamette Valley.  With an extensive history and numerous 90+ scores, Raptor Ridge is one of Oregon’s pre-eminent producers and has, among many other accolades, been named a Top 100 Winery by Food and Wine magazine.

Raptor Ridge Pinot Gris is a blend of separately vinified and aged barrels from seven different vineyards across multiple Willamette Valley AVAs. 100% whole cluster pressed, fermented in 3+ months in barrels and aged in stainless steel, this bottling also sees a light bentonite fining, no secondary fermentation. The wine undergoes a long, slow fermentation cycle, to enable the complex and layered aromatics to blend into a seamless whole. The lush texture is complemented by a balance of freshness and acidity to create a crowd-pleasing 100% Pinot Gris.

Food pairings: pork, charcuterie and foie gras
