Pinot Gris

2020 Pinot Gris | Trenton | Jesse Estate, Willamette Valley, OR

The Battle of Trenton was a small but pivotal engagement between the Continental Army and Hessian mercenaries on the frozen morning of Dec. 26th, 1776. General Washington needed a victory after a series of defeats in New York. So in a daring move he led a surprise attack across the Delaware river on Christmas night. Washington’s final note to his commanders was “Victory or Death”. Washington’s crossing was the only element to successfully make it across the river. The ensuing victory rallied the Army, restored colonial confidence, galvanized the militias, and ultimately saved the American Revolution

Winemaker notes: Hand picked pinot gris from Jesse Estate vineyards. A combination of Cornelius and Willamette soils. Early harvest before the forest fire smoke settled over the valley. Unfined and polish filtered. A crisp balance of citrus and lemongrass are complimented by floral aromas. Bottled under anaerobic conditions.
