The Cascadia Region in the Pacific northwest boasts an abundance of
forests, mountains, lakes, and the many waterfalls that gave the area its
name. The moderate climate and rich soil of the region also make it an ideal location for vineyards, which is why we have chosen two of the region’s finest varieties to showcase for a limited release offering.
Oregon Pinot Noir
With 15 approved wine growing regions and over 300 wineries producing
over 72 varietals, Oregon is a well-established wine growing region with
some of the most breathtaking landscapes. Winemakers from this region
believe in high quality artisan wine and produce an average of 5,000 cases
of wine per year. Known for its micro-climates, Oregon produces varietals
with distinctive fruit flavours, aromatics and complexities.
This medium-bodied wine produces aromatics of raspberries, cherries and
a hint of spice. You can expect flavours of red berries, earth and a touch of
toasted vanilla on the palate.
Washington Pinot Gris
East of the Cascade Mountains lies Washington’s primary grape growing
region. The first grapes were planted in 1852 by the Hudson Bay Company
and, by 1910, French, German, and Italian immigrants had planted
vineyards across the state. The arid climate and long daylight hours in the
growing season are ideal for producing wines with good acidic levels, pleasing
aromatics and complex fruit flavours.
A medium- to full-bodied wine, this Pinot Gris has aromatics of white pear,
peach and apple, while on the palate you can expect balanced acidity, juicy
pears and a crisp finish. Meant to be consumed early.
