Raptor Ridge Pinot Gris 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

The lush nose of this expansive Pinot gris welcomes you with scents of orange blossom and anise. Showing more stone- and tree-fruit notes than usual, Apricot, Bartlett Pear, Guava and Quince round out the aromatics. The ample mid-palate offers Key Lime, Lemon Grass, and Grapefruit, with a silky transition to a refreshing mineral focused acidic finish, with surprising notes of verbena, sesame and orange peel. This food-friendly approachable gris is consistent with previous vintage styles, and offers some great exotic food pairing options from Thai Curry to Indian Chicken Tikka Masala.

Raptor Ridge shares a 27-acre estate with families of Raptors — birds of prey such as Red-tailed Hawks, Kestrels, Sharp-Shinned Hawks and Owls. We are located on the northeast side of the Chehalem Mountains, 10 miles north of Newberg, Oregon. At Raptor Ridge, our winemaking goal is to capture the fresh fruit flavors and delicate aromas offered by Oregon's Willamette Valley winegrowing region. Raptor Ridge Pinot noir ages in French oak and is racked in synchrony with the dark of the moon. Raptor Ridge Pinot gris is made in a refreshing Alsacian style. Vineyards In addition to our own 27-acre estate property, several distinctive vineyards throughout Oregon's northern Willamette Valley supply premium wine grapes for Raptor Ridge. Our Pinot noir style favors deep red and blue-fruit flavors and baker's chocolate aromas often derived from winegrapes grown in the McMinnville Foothills area. Our Vineyard Designated wines, as well as our Reserve and Willamette Valley Pinot noirs, hail from several well-known winegrowers. Read less

Light and nutty aromas of toasted almond with hints of lemon on the nose. In the mouth this is rich and round, with soft buttery lemon flavors, chamomile flowers and a buoyant acidity. Carries a pleasant melon and peach flavor through to the finish which is creamy and warm with a burst of lemon zest.
