Torii Mor’s 2017 Pinot Gris displays a light golden color, a rich forward aroma of fresh pears, ripe apples with honeysuckle floral notes. The flavors show a bright, refreshing acidity, followed by a light sweetness and fruity notes of ripe apples and pears and delicate aromatic spice notes. The wine texture is juicy, rich and mouth-filling. The finish is bright, rich, with a long fruity-sweet finish. This Pinot Gris is easy drinking and enjoyable with every sip leaving you wanting more. This Pinot Gris will be a great food pairing to seafood in general, and fat rich seafood, like salmon and steelhead in particular.

Our Pinot Gris was pressed then racked into stainless steel tanks and neutral French oak barrels (8.40%) and inoculated with D47 yeast strain, selected to accentuate ripe fruit flavors and provide richness of mouth-feel. After aging on lees without Malo-Lactic fermentation the wine was cold stabilized, filtered and bottled.
