2017 Duck Pond Pinot Gris Anniversary Blend
Celebrating a 25th anniversary is truly special – an occasion where we have crafted a wine to say thank you to all the people who have contributed to our past, and to help usher us in to the future. The 25th Anniversary Pinot Gris was crafted with the idea of making an exemplary Pinot Gris in an unexpected style, while showcasing each of our five vineyards that grow the variety and their unique character. This unabashedly full-bodied style of Pinot Gris is rich and textured with a decidedly white floral nose accentuated by the cinnamon and vanilla of the 1/3 new oak. The wonderful tropical notes (St. Jory), stone fruit (Delaney), mineral (Hylo) characters of the Salem vineyards are lifted by the ripe fruit of the Coles Valley Vineyard and framed by the slight tannic quality of the Duck Pond Estate fruit. This special wine is what Pinot Gris can be when slightly re-imagined. Enjoy a bottle now, but get a case and watch it expand in flavor and refine over the next 2-4 years. Bottled unfiltered and unfined.
