Goodfellow Family Cellars Pinot Gris Reserve "Clover" '17

Longtime Perman Wine fans will agree, Marcus Goodfellow makes one of the best American Pinot Gris, and its name is "Clover."

This Pinot Gris comes from Richard and Patria Alvord's vineyard called Whistling Ridge. One of the top sites in the Ribbon Ridge AVA, this well situated vineyard sits on the top of an exposed ridge top planted in sedimentary soil. As a member of the Deep Roots Coalition, Marcus works with only dry-farmed vineyards, including Whistling Ridge.

Grapes are harvested with a goal of preserving acidity and freshness. For winemaking, after a brief settling of solids, the juice is moved directly to 800L Acacia foudre for a long, cool fermentation. The wine is aged on the lees for 20 months, with only a brief stirring at the end of primary fermentation, to insure complete dryness. This is both a more serious and more savory version of Oregon Pinot Gris.

The 2017 Clover is spectacular, a more open knit version that the 2016. Notes of citrus, plum, sage and mineral. It really opens on the palate, with nice texture, and a dry savory finish.
