Brian Oregon Gris 2019


| /

This is 60% Pinot Noir, 20% Pinot Gris, and 20% Pinot Blanc from the Willamette Valley. 750ml. An in fact, the back label is incorrect. It’s 100% Gris here, and likely the 3 Pinots is this blend. MORONS.

The colour is the eye of the partridge, it’s the thrill of the fight. All manner of things going on here. Fresh strawberries dusted with pepper, watermelon rind, pear skins, pastrami, star jasmine. It’s fleshy, powdery tannin grip, crunch of fresh strawberry and cooling watermelon, juicy but strict, the finish closing with length and a mashup of red wine/white wine flavours, and plenty of chalky tannin grip. It’s like meeting a beautiful crazy person. And such great fun to drink.
