2012 Poor Farm Pinot Gris
Edgefield Estate Vineyard, Willamette Valley, OR
The 2012 Poor Farm Pinot Gris is a more reserved white wine, with aromas and flavors of apples, fresh pear and a bit of lemon zest. Ideal growing conditions and harvesting on October 12th, just moments ahead of the first of the fall rain storms brought in the fruit with a beautifully balanced profile. The alcohol is reserved, the acid moderated and the overall fruit impression is full of pear, apple and a subtle spice from the barrel aging. The wine was fermented in neutral oak barrels with frequent lees stirring for added weight and body in the mid-palate, and a smooth, creamy finish.
