"Smooth and silky with juicy, bright flavors; peach and citrus, long and balanced."
Snappy and a bit spritzy with citrus and juicy flavors with good acidity; long and clean
"Estate-grown from some of the oldest Pinot Gris vines in Washington, this Yakima Valley bottling highlights fresh herbs and sharp, juicy pear and apple fruit flavors. The vivid fruit is racy and tightly defined, and seems to gather strength and focus as it sits in the mouth. A spelndid effort that really sets the standard for Washington Pinot Gris." - Paul Gregutt, October 2010
Willow Crest 2007 Estate Pinot Gris is recommended in the June 2009 issue of Seattle Magazine and listed as the TOP VALUE Washington Pinot Gris in columnist Shannon Borg's picks for summer! Â "The 1,300 ft. elevation of David Minick's Prosser vineyard helps moderate the vineyard's temperature and ripen the Pinot Gris grapes slowly. This wine has fresh apple and pear flavors, a classic dry style perfect for sipping on a summer evening," said Borg.
Aromas of pear, Granny Smith apples, banana and orange blossoms. The light sweetness balances the crisp acidity. It has a fresh, lively fruit aftertaste.
