Lauri Corliss

2015 Pinot Gris

An intensely fragrant nose of cantaloupe, fresh kiwi and white peach with nuances of slivered almond and dried straw. The wine is silky and seamless in texture with exotic fruit flavors of guava and lychee, lifted by a fresh saline minerality. Lightly toasted honey notes are underscored by a firm, driving acidity, drawing out the palate to a powerful and long-lasting finish.

Winemaker Notes

Our Pinot Gris grapes are sourced from Lawrence Vineyard, a high elevation site at 1675ft on the Royal Slope in the Columbia Valley AVA. These grapes produce intensely aromatic wines that show fully developed flavors while still maintaining a strong acid backbone. The clusters were whole-bunch pressed into neutral French oak barrels and concrete egg, and fermented with native yeast until dry. Regular stirring of the lees helped to impart richness, depth and persistence to the finished blend, balancing out the high natural acidity of this unique site.
