Anne Amie Vineyards Pinot Gris Two Estates 2021 750ml

Anne Amie

Producer Notes

Our Pinot gris is an elegant expression of this versatile varietal. Intensely aromatic powdery
floral notes give way to a palate of Asian pear, Meyer lemon and rose petal. Balanced and crisp,
this wine is a great match for many dishes from chicken paella or moules-frites to pork roast.
VINIFICATION
Grapes were hand-picked and brought directly to the winery in 1/2 ton totes in perfect
condition. They were whole cluster pressed and placed into temperature controlled stainless
steel fermenters, where they were slowly cold-fermented at 45°F for maximum varietal
character. 15% of the Pinot gris was fermented in neutral barrels at 55°F to enhance
mouthfeel and aged on the lees for four months before bottling.
VINTAGE DESCRIPTION
The 2020 growing season was superb for vine growth and fruit development in the northern Willamette
Valley. Like 2019, it was a year of high heat accumulation without days of extreme heat. There was cool
weather and some rain in June during flowering and the vines produced the smallest crop of the past
decade. Low yields paired with the warm temperatures brought excellent fruit maturity and flavor.
However, in the final stretch of days before harvest, the west coast of the United States was besieged by
forest fires. The smoke obscured the sun and robbed the vines of solar radiation for about a week. When
the air cleared, we were fortunate to have good weather to finish the ripening but left with questions over
smoke-impact on the flavor profile of the grapes. We reviewed the fruit as it came in and determined
what vinification processes were best for the different sites and blocks, based on what we found. 2020
was a year that will live in infamy, and though our production was diminished due to the fires and low
yields, we only worked with fruit not affected by smoke, and the wines produced will be concentrated
and remarkable.
