2017 The Four Graces Pinot Gris, Willamette Valley
This 2017 Pinot Gris is lively and refreshing. Beautiful bright aromas of ripe pineapple, Meyer lemon and honeysuckle flower mingle in the glass. The palate continues with fresh lemon and orange zest followed by a touch of smooth quince, which leads into a refreshing lingering acidity.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair with pan seared tilapia in a silky lemon and herb butter sauce, or alone as an aperitif.

The 2017 vintage began with a colder than average winter, with multiple snowstorms. Thankfully, Spring saw a return to normal with bud break taking place in April. As Summer approached, the classic warm days and cool nights made for ideal growing conditions without any major heat waves. During the harvest, from September 20th – October 11th 2017, we received less than average rainfall, which allowed for nearly perfect harvesting conditions.
The grapes for The Four Graces Pinot Gris are sourced from our Foley Family Estate vineyard as well as Olson Vineyard in the Willamette Valley.
