Nectarine, ginger and citrus peel aromatics lead to a synchronous palate that’s rounded and full with fresh flavors of sliced peach complemented by a savory note of cantaloupe and prosciutto.
Our Pinot Gris is hand-harvested from our estate hillside vineyards in the northern Willamete Valley. Pinot Gris has long been a focus at Elk Cove – our Winery Estate Vineyard boasts some of the oldest Pinot Gris vines in Oregon, dating back to 1985. Three of our other estate vineyard sites are also planted with Pinot Gris, including 50 acres on steep-sloped Mount Richmond Vineyard in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA.
Wine Enthusiast Review:
Elk Cove is a standard bearer when it comes to Willamette Valley Pinot Gris. Their latest vintage features aromas of peach sorbet, a trace of pineapple and a crushed sprig of lemon balm. Energizing acidity drives a crisp texture and flavors like spearmint and a pear tart sprinkled with cinnamon. -M.A.
