2018 Left Coast “The Orchard” Pinot Gris ($18)

This 100% Pinot Gris from Left Coast Estate winery in another in their line of really terrific wines.

The vineyard is planted at the site of a historic apple and pear orchard dating back to the pioneers who settled Oregon. Hence “The Orchard” Pinot Gris.

The Left Coast Pinot Gris is fermented and aged with 95% of it in stainless steel and 5% in neutral French oak.

This Pinot Gris delivers bright green apples and stone fruits and is underscored with green tea and honeysuckle notes. It’s also got mouth-watering acidity for a juicy finish.

While the tasting notes recommend pairing this wine with cheeses, fresh fruits, smoked salmon, pasta salad, scallops, grilled chicken or halibut tacos, I found it to be a wonderful wine on its own. I think you will too! Cheers!
