Pinot Gris Accolades

2017 Pinot Gris

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast, October, 2018
"With exceptional texture and detail, this young wine transcends the vast majority of similarly-priced Oregon Pinot Gris. Grapefruit, melon and nectarine flavors are there in abundance, with highlights of lemon zest and defining acidity." Best Buy. - P.G.

2016 Pinot Gris

89 Points - Wine Enthusiast, October, 2017
"Light tawny in color, this palate-pleasing effort boasts stone fruit, orange blossom and fresh herb flavors. It's elegant and food-friendly in style, with the sort of detail that usually comes with a higher price tag."

Outsanding! rating / Best Buy - Great Northwest Wine
"The Fries family and winemaker Trevor Chlanda have the luxury of working with estate vineyards in the Willamette Valley as well as the warmer Umpqua Valley for their program. It is their St. Jory site..that forms the foundation for this charmer that starts remarkably tropical yet packs a nice punch in the finish. Papaya, mango, tutti fruitti, mint and white pepper aromas lead to flavors of white peach, backed by Granny Smith apple and gooseberry acidity."
