"This tropical gris is weighty and ripened, yet maintains some ripping acidity that will slap you ‘til Friday (It’s only Wednesday). Drink while en route to Fhloston Paradise.
Temperance Hill is a cooler site, consisting of varying slopes and exposures. The vineyard looks straight out over the Van Duzer corridor, the large break in the Oregon coast line, receiving the full effects of the famed afternoon winds that pull in cooler air from the Pacific ocean, allowing extended ripening capabilities in the area. Because of this, every year, we split the Gris from this special site into two picks almost a full two weeks apart. The added airflow from the coastal winds allows us to hang the fruit of the 2nd pick for quite some time, making a richer, fuller showing of gris. The earlier pick allows us to capture more acidity and balance in the final wine." - Maloof
