Anne Amie Pinot Gris 2008
Region: Yamhill-Carlton District, Oregon
Winery: Anne Amie
Variety: Pinot Gris
This is not your typical American watered down Pinot Gris. This is a well-crafted wine that has been lovingly made with respect to what the Pinot Gris varietal can offer. Don't let its pale yellow color fool you.
Exhibiting cinnamon-pears, green apples and wet stone on the nose, it has a refreshing amount out of food friendly acidity and crisp feel in the mouth. The flavors include asian pears, citrus, peaches, with a hint of minerals and ripe peaches on the finish.
I had this wine with a delicate melon salad with a light cesar dressing and a cucumber wrapped Ahi Tuna and rice cake. It was excellent with both exhibiting its softer citrus and minerality with the salad, and more of the tangy peaches, acidity and mineral with the Ahi Tuna rice cake. I would pair this with shellfish, roasted chicken, summer pasta dishes and Asian fare.
The Anne Amie vineyards are situated in the mountains of the Oregon wine region of Yamhill -Carlton where 1.6 acres are dedicated to growing Pinot Gris, originally planted in 2000.
