Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A little Alsatian-inspired white gem from Southern Oregon Siskiyou Mountains. Soft aromatics opening to ripe orchard apple and pear and white peach, lemon, zest and minerality. Light bodied with a crisp finish. Serve nicely chilled and this will not disappoint you. This wine will pair with just about anything you choose to serve. Perfect salad and shellfish wine. Good value.
Tasted: August 2016
Foris consistently produces true-to -arietal, Alsatian style white wines. This Pinot Gris is a clean and crisp with apple, pear flavours and a zesty citrus finish. The Oregon winery was established in 1974. The estate vineyards are planted in a valley surrounded by southern Oregon's Siskiyou Mountains. This alpine enviroment influences the wines. Pinot Gris was first planted in 1977 as an experiment to see how that grape varetal would fare here. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
