Compton Family Wines
Pinot Gris 2022
Varietal purity is on display here, offering classic Pinot Gris flavors with hints of citrus. pear, peach, and a touch of almond. Elegant texture on a broad mid-palate is set off by crisp natural acids. A lovely hint of lemon oil accents both the scent and the flavor. Creamy toasted lees and soft honey notes lead to lingering flavors, mouth filling – this one is something special.
Our 2022 vintage of Compton Pinot Gris was whole cluster pressed and fermented in both stainless steel and concrete egg tanks before blending and bottling. The blending of these two ferments yields bright fruit flavors and balanced acidity. Compton Pinot Gris is made with 100% Willamette Valley dry-farmed grapes from Compton Family Farms, Newton Creek Vineyard, Hoot & Howl Vineyard, and Mary’s Peak Vineyard.
