North of California, in cooler Oregon, Pinot Gris has a distinctive style all its own. Ballard Road Pinot Gris was crafted at Firesteed Vineyards, mainly from Willamette grapes by the highly regarded Bryan Croft. This Oregon Pinot Gris reveals aromas of white peach, pear blossom and pink grapefruit. The palate is crisp with lively acidity and refreshing citrus flavours followed by ripe stone fruits and zippy freshness. The finish is clean and smooth. Serve chilled on its own or with grilled fish, Thai green curry chicken or pork chops.
