Lady Hill Winery 2017 Pinot Gris, Willamette Valley, $18

By on July 9, 2018

Dan Duryee is well into his second decade as a winemaker after earning a molecular biology degree through the University of Colorado, and this bottling represents his second vintage for the Owen family at Lady Hill. Their Pinot Gris is a display of balance; bright citrus aromas and flavors, with a full mouth feel, showing off a full body, yet retaining the perfect amount of acid to keep it bright and fresh. This won a double gold medal at the sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition. Suggested pairings include grilled halibut with cilantro garlic butter.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 800 cases
