Acrobat is fun. A wine born to introduce even more people to the style and grace of Pinot Gris. Grown responsibly in the gorgeous hills and valleys of Western Oregon, this wine works wonderfully with food of all kinds and is equally crisp and refreshing on its own.
Review
Wine Spectator: Light and juicy, delivering lively pear, honeydew and spice aromas and flavors that linger nicely. Drink now. - H.S.

Wine maker notes
2008 was a classic Oregon vintage. A cool spring started the vintage off slowly, but warm summer weather allowed the grapes to catch up and grown at a steady, even pace. Estate heat summation was typical, 1807 growing degree days vs. the average 1811. The summer saw below average rain fall with only 6.75 inches between April and October, including a minimal 1.5 inches that fell during the critical late-September / early-October pre-harvest period. As a result, fruit was clean, ripe and concentrated.

Food pairing
A perfect accompaniment for poultry, shellfish and other seafood. This Pinot Gris would also pair beautifully with fruits, cheeses, and cured meats.
