2015 Latah Creek Pinot Gris

BACKGROUND

Father/daughter winemaking team, Mike and Natalie, added Pinot Gris to Latah Creek’s wine family in 2010. This Italian grape grows exceptionally well here in Washington State and produces a wonderfully crisp, drier white wine. This is Ellena’s (wife/mother) favorite white wine.

WINEMAKING

The 2015 Pinot Gris marks a first for Latah Creek; it was the first time a wine was bottled in the same vintage year. Even with the early bottling, this wine is exceptional. The wine was fermented in stainless steel at cooler temperatures, to retain its forward fruit characteristics. A higher acid level was left in the wine to keep it crisp and fresh.

TASTING NOTES

Subtle sweet basil and mint aromas mingle with honeydew melon. Pear and a honeyed mineral at first sip, while papaya with fresh limes and a crisp finish linger.

 

FOOD PAIRING

This wine pairs perfectly with fresh seafood dishes, salads, and pork, such as Ellena's Roasted Salmon with White Wine Sauce recipe published in her latest cookbook.

Those who like a little spritz in their lives and their wine should love Latah Creek’s 2015 Pinot Gris. The Spokane winery brought in Yakima Valley fruit from denHoed vineyards, and it’s a classic Washington-styled Pinot Gris with fruit flavors and aromas leaning more toward crabapple and pear with a touch of honey. Toward the finish, a slice of fresh papaya emerges, then resolves back into green apple and crisp, juicy acidity
