2010 Seven of Hearts Pinot Gris – Review

By Duane Pemberton
Winery website: http://www.sevenofheartswine.com/

Oregon has been known to many here in the northwest for making outstanding Pinot Gris so I was excited to try this one from Seven of Hearts as I know their winemaker is extremely passionate about producing Oregon varietals that express the terroir of the vineyards and regions they are grown in.

Technical Data:

  • Cases Produced: 126
  • Source: Rattlesnake Road Vineyard, Oregon
  • Harvest Date: October 26, 2010
  • Bottling Date: April, 2011
  • Alcohol: 15.8%
  • Price: $16

Nose: Citrus, green apple core, baking spices, kiwi, grapefruit pulp and lemon zest.

Taste: Very nice tropical and citrus fruits combine with a stellar mouth-feel, acids and finish that make this Pinot gris a no-brainer pick for artichokes, and lemon-rosemary risotto with chicken.

W.E.P. Rating: 100%
