Sokol Blosser Pinot Gris 2015


Description

Pinot Gris from Willamette Valley, Oregon

Winemaker Notes:
This 2015 Willamette Valley Pinot Gris is Sokol Blosser’s signature white wine of Oregon. We press the pinot gris grapes as whole clusters. They are given a slow, cool fermentation in stainless steel, which gives the wine a firm, focused backbone coupled with its lush creaminess. Our pinot gris has complex undertones of earth and mineral with expressive notes of floral, citrus and melon.
Vintage Highlights:

2015 saw record heat growing degree days, encouraging the earliest bud break and bloom since we began growing grapes in 1971, and one of the earliest harvest dates on record. The large crop required fruit thinning to ensure we had enough fermentation space in the cellar. We finished bringing in fruit on September 22nd, the same day we started harvest in 2012. We have never seen a hotter year in Oregon. The one constant about growing grapes here is that every year is different and special. 2015 will be a huge serving of both.
