2016 Tyee Estate Pinot Gris

$19.00

Winemaker’s Notes

2016 Tyee Estate Pinot gris is refreshing with citrus blossom, green apple, cotton candy, white peach and mineral tones.  Made from 90% Old Vines, 10% New Vines grown in Tyee Estate Vineyard.  Hand harvested and gently whole cluster pressed with a bit of extended skin contact.  400 Cases Produced.

 

Tyee Estate Vineyard

Tyee Wine Cellars is located on our Family Farm founded over 130 years ago in the heart of Oregon's Willamette Valley.  Pinot gris vines were planted thoughout the 1980's in Tyee's Estate Vineyard and again in 2000.  These vines of Pinot gris are dry-farmed.  Five family generations have revered the farm's open spaces, woodlands, wetlands and streams while growing crops in a sustainable manner.  Good wines remember the grapes of their origin.  We believe sharing Tyee Estate wines with you is perhaps the most sublime expression of the land.
