A to Z - Pinot Gris - Oregon
Overview: A to Z Wineworks was started in 2002 by Oregon wine industry veterans: Deb Hatcher (Eyrie), Bill Hatcher (Domaine Drouhin Oregon), Sam Tannahill (Archery Summit) and Cheryl Francis (Chehalem). The two couples worked in the Hatcher's kitchen to build the original blend honored by Food & Wine magazine as the Best American Pinot Noir under $20. Recognition for A to Z wines as offering dependable quality for great value continues today making A to Z the top-selling Oregon wine brand.
Tasting Notes: Expressive nose with bountiful fruit -- pear, white peach, apricot, lime zest, papaya, melon, guava, gooseberry – and non-fruit aromas -- honeysuckle, rose, apple blossom, ginger, fresh cut hay, beeswax. The wine is rich and satisfying in the mouth with lip-smacking acidity and a silky texture. Immaculately balanced, it finishes with lingering sweet notes of honey, fresh green grass and a sensation of minerality.
Pairing: Your favorite backyard BBQ, seafood, pork, roast vegetables, an order of fries, asparagus (yes, asparagus), a bagel with cream cheese and lox, lemon chicken, clams casino, sauerbraten, hot & sour soup, Thanksgiving leftovers, dim sum, that great Cubano sandwich you always get at the food truck owned by that guy with the cool beard, brioche, hot wings, cauliflower purée, seared steelhead with fried leeks and fresh herbs, bánh mi, or a bag of Swedish fish.
