Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A delicate little sipper! Mild aromas of honey, apricot, lemon and mineral. Zingy acidity and medium oily rich body with a decent lemon-honey finish. It pairs quite well with seared scallops, shrimp cocktail and crispy calamari.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Pear and floral aromas give way to lemon and peach on the palate. Finishes with a crisp mineral tinted mouthful.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This lovely Pinot Gris has a nose of mild nectarine and a palate with nectarine, lemon zest, canteloupe & minerality. Medium-bodied, crisp and dry mouthfeel with a lemon zest finish.
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Very nice tropical, citrus, zest and floral on the nose. The palate is smooth and light with characteristics of green apple and a lingering pear finish. Acidity is a refreshing medium+. Perfect patio sipper or aperitif.Serve well chilled.
Tasted: March 2015
Produced by the Fries Family, this Oregonian wine hails from the region of the Dundee Hills. Lots of fresh orchard fruit aromas and flavours. - Community Wine Reviews
