Voix de la Vigne Pinot Gris Willamette Valley
WHY WE LOVE IT
- Clean, cool climate Pinot Gris from Willamette Valley with a great mix of white fruit, minerals, and a lush mouthfeel.
Varietal Composition: 100% Pinot Gris
Elaboration: The Pinot Gris fruit was whole-cluster pressed immediately upon arrival at the cellar and the juice allowed to settle for 36 hours. The juice was then racked clean into stainless steel fermenters and underwent fermentation for three weeks at medium to low temperatures of between 60°F and 66°F. The wine was then filtered and bottled.
Tasting Notes: Shines with aromatics of white flowers, pineapple, citrus, and kiwi. A vibrant palate notes of lavender and slate up front with white peach and banana to round out it’s clean and lush finish.
Housed in a fully modern winemaking facility in Dundee, Oregon, Voix de la Vigne wines are made by French-born winemaker Bruno Corneaux. The wines are crafted to express the purity of each grape variety. These are elegant wines, with no use of new oak, and relatively low alcohol levels. The grapes are sourced from a variety of vineyard sites from both volcanic and sedimentary soils. These vineyards are under the viticultural control of Bruno Corneaux and his team. Voix de la Vigne wines are dressed up to evoke classics from the old world. The label is not only pleasing to the eye, but serves also as an indication of what the buyer can expect from the wine. The intent is to ‘speak’ to the wine buyer who is interested in wine of elegance and finesse – the hallmark of the Voix de la Vigne brand.
