Sadly, I am wrapping up my Oregon Pinot Gris tasting adventure. The good news is that I saved the best for last! David Hill Winery is home to some of the region’s oldest Pinot Noir vines and their tasting room was built in 1883. Their 2011 estate grown Pinot Gris easily won me over!
David Hill Winery 2011 Estate Pinot Gris pours a white gold color in the glass. The nose is fragrant with aromas of pear, melon, and lemon. The palate is packed with flavors of tangy, tart grapefruit and lime with hints of green apple. With refreshing flavors and vibrant acidity, this wine really excited my taste buds! ($18, 12.5% alcohol)
My Wine Rating – B+
Food Pairing Suggestions – Pair with oysters, a shrimp po’ boy, or smoked cheddar cheese.
