alexana winery terroir series pinot gris 2016 bottle - Alexana Winery 2016 Terroir Series Pinot Gris, Willamette Valley, $32Dundee Hills winemaker Bryan Weil presents complexity with the Pinot Gris from the west side of the Alexana estate, devoting some time on the lees with stirring twice a month. The nose is filled with apple blossoms, peach and pear, while the palate offers those same fleshy orchard fruit flavors. The surlie aging shows with crushed banana on the midpalate, which gives way to a lingering finish of lime zest.
