Maysara Pinot Gris 2007

Maysara is a winery that we think makes great Oregon wines across the board. Their Pinot Noir convinced us, and the Pinot Gris backs up our opinion. It's typical of Oregon Pinot Gris, and we think it drinks well, with excellent notes. No malolactic fermentation and stainless steel resulted in a crisp, clean wine.

Winemaker Tasting Notes

A favorite since our first release, this year’s Pinot Gris shines with a brilliant light golden hue. The tropical nose melds with hints of passion fruit, pineapple and spicy undertones. A fleshy, creamy, honey-glazed mouth feel with notes of Asian pear, citrus and mangos lead to a crisp clean finish. A great aperitif, the Gris allows for a wide variety of parings. Enjoy!

Winemaker Comments

Following harvest, 25% of this fruit was de-stemmed and 75% was whole-cluster pressed. In order to preserve the crispness and acidity, our 2007 Pinot Gris was produced entirely in stainless steel and did not undergo malolactic fermentation. The Pinot Gris was both fined and filtered prior to bottling on March 4th, 2008.
