Montinore Estate 2018 Pinot Gris
Willamette Valley Oregon
Vinous 91 Rating
Extremely pale, vaguely hazy onion skin. Ripe pear, melon and hyacinth scents are complemented by a subtle touch of honey. Round and seamless in texture, offering open-knit orchard and pit fruit flavors and a subtle touch of succulent herbs. More on the weighty, Alsace side of this varietal equation than on the Italian side. The long, floral-driven finish shows good clarity and a hint of herbacity. There's a lot going on here for such a reasonably priced wine; I imagine that the hipster crowd would happily pay double and think they'd scored a deal. Maybe they did. Drinking window: 2020 – 2023
Must be ordered.
