2014 Snowline Pinot Gris Columbia Valley
Snowline Pinot Gris is made in a style somewhere between the power of Alsace and the delicacy of Italy’s Pinot Grigio. Clear and crisp with a burst of peaches and pears in the mouth followed by a smooth and satisfying finish. Pairs nicely with cold lobster salads, salmon steaks, roasted halibut and turkey dinners.
The Cascade Mountains are the dominant influence on the multiple micro-climates of the Northwest. These climates range from cool coastal, the perfect environment for Pinot Gris, to high desert where varietals from Riesling to Chardonnay thrive in the long growing seasons. The extended hang time of the fruit in this otherwise harsh environment is the key to the depth of flavors in the brilliant wines of this region. With the aid of the Big Rivers flowing off the east side of the Cascades, a once arid and stark landscape has blossomed into the exceptional vineyards of the Northwest.
