Pray Tell 2021 70% Pinot Gris 30% Chardonnay, Willamette Valley
The Pinot Gris is grown at an elevation of 1,000 feet. Bright ripe fruit hits your palate first. The fruit reminds me of strawberries, which is unique for a white wine to have red fruit characteristics. There is also a note that is similar to candied watermelon that keeps the mouthfeel light and leads to crisp minerality on the finish. The minerality allows for a slight tartness to come out on the finish.
