Torii Mor Pinot Gris 2021
2021 Pinot Gris
Bud break started a little later than usual in late April., followed by a warm May. Bloom began mid-June, leading the Willamette Valley into a cool and dry summer. Cooler days in August led to a
very cold and wet September prior to harvest. Grape yields were slightly higher than average and we ended up with plenty of clean and ripe fruit for the vintage.

Forward aromas of ripe banana, green apples and a hint of green grass lead to a bright and refreshing wine with notes of sweet fruit, apples and freshly cut grass. The juiciness of the flavors extend through a bright finish with a hint of minerality. This is the perfect pairing with rich seafood such as salmon or steelhead.
