2011 Winter’s Hill Vineyard Dundee Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Gris

13.5% alc., 550 cases, pH 3.15, $16. Whole cluster pressed, fermented in stainless steel tanks, no malolactic fermentation. · Very faint straw color in the glass. Aromas of crabapple, hay and biscuit. Flavors of green apple, grapefruit and lemon with piercing, tart acidity that is electric. Hard to cozy up to the shrillness in this wine. Needs mollifying food. Decent at best. Reviewed November 24, 2012
