Oregon has made a name for itself with fuller-bodied, Alsace-style Pinot Gris. This peach-inflected example is crisp and silky.
What You Need To Know
Del Rio’s Lee and Cookie Traynham belong to a family of California cattle ranchers, but started wrangling grapes instead of cows when they purchased a tract of farmland in southern Oregon’s Rogue Valley in 1997. The couple converted a sprawling pear orchard into a vineyard, eventually turning a former packing house into a winery and hiring Jean- Michel Jussiaume to head it. The son of a vintner in France’s Loire Valley, Jussiaume has a knack for polished, food-friendly reds and vibrant whites. That’s evident in this mouthwatering Pinot Gris, which he fermented mostly in steel tanks to keep its flavors bright. A small portion fermented in oak barrels gives the wine a creamy edge.
