NOTES FROM WINEMAKER, KARL WEICHOLD
Lively aromas of lemon and Anjou pear leap from the glass, greeting you with freshness and acidity. The palate is buzzy with floral notes and sliced white peach, while the finish tapers into a pleasant echo of lemon and tangerine. This wine showcases the crispness and balance that makes Oregon Pinot Gris so singular.
The 2022 growing season was full of surprises that resulted in a miracle harvest of delicious, age-worthy wines with balance and vibrancy. The vintage kicked off with a cold and wet spring that turned worrisome when an unusually late-season freeze event affected lower-lying sections of the vineyard. Slowly but surely, temperatures began to warm by mid-May and continued to rise throughout the summer allowing the vines to flourish.
