2019 Chemistry Pinot Gris
The 2019 vintage was a return to a classic Oregon growing season. Moderate summer weather persisted, presenting very few heat spikes and delivering only one notable record-breaking day in June. Cool, wet weather arrived early in September, pushing ripening and delaying the harvest window. The conditions in late September and October returned to sunny days and brisk nights, allowing us to pick based on ripe fruit flavors and near-perfect natural acidity. With a pale straw yellow color, tropical aromatics like papaya and sweet meringue leap out of the glass. The palate shows ripe stonefruit characteristics with a richness that fills out the mid palate with a kiss of sweetness that carries to the finish.
