A hugely rich wine with opulent sweetness, honey and ripe sweet sultanas. It has a wonderful intensity of flavor, just hinting at acidity. It is beautiful to drink now, but will surely age.
This impressively rich wine, with impeccable balance, has acidity and ripe, spicy fruit in great accord. It’s dry, with its acidity cutting through the complex texture. It should certainly age over several years.
Rich and sweet wine in character with a Vendange Tardive. It is gorgeous and opulent, while balanced and elegant. The acidity is in wonderful contrast to the smoky honey and orange zest flavors. A hint of bitterness suggests, for sure, that this wine will be even more wonderful when aged.
This very limited, concrete-egg-fermented, and thoroughly splendid Pinot Gris is a good indication of the potential for PG in Oregon if the price limitations are lifted. Stunningly rich with citrus, lemon curd, ripe apple and light tropical fruits, this concentrated, deeply driven wine is both roundly full and amazingly dense. Certainly the best Oregon Pinot Gris…
Everything that’s good about late-harvest Pinot Gris is captured in this wine from the Kessler vineyard. The apricot and peach aromas are powerful, but it’s the acid-based nectarine, honey and maple flavors that really make the point. Clear and focused throughout.
This is one solid, tight nectar with exotic stone-fruit aromas alongside honey, melon and apricot. It’s got just enough complexity to satisfy fans of serious European dessert wines. Long and sweet late, with excellent acidity and a lush texture.
Packed with dense, concentrated, pure fruit, layers of flavors piled on each other. At this young stage, the dominant flavor is spice, but there is plenty of fruit hiding, which will come out as it develops. The wine is relatively sweet. Imported by Paterno Wines International.
As is common with many of the Deiss wines, this carries no indication of varietal, just the name of the vineyard, in this case a small parcel between Bergheim and Ribeauvillé. With its sweetness and richness, this has characteristics of noble rot, but the spiciness of Pinot Gris shows through. There is also great finishing acidity. Imported by New Castle Imports.
