90 points from Wine Enthusiast and 90 points from the Beverage Testing Institute for our 2013 Portlandia Pinot Gris!
Oregon’s most popular white wine receives a tiny bit of help here from Chardonnay, Viognier and Muscat, and the results are impressive from this company headquartered in Seattle. Classic aromas of starfruit, grapefruit, pear, apple and orange oil don’t mislead. The drink is clean and bright with ripe orchard fruit and pleasing acidity. There’s no hint at oak and no distraction from residual sugar. This brand now is available at BevMo locations throughout Washington.
Production: 500 cases
BevMo! stores in Washington state are now stocking Portlandia Pinots.
The first accolades for our wines have come in. The Beverage Tasting Institute gave our 2011 Pinot Noir a Gold Medal with 90 points, and our 2012 Pinot Gris a Silver Medal with 89 points. “A rock solid pinot for the table, especially duck.” Check out our Awards page for details.
Our 2012 Pinot Gris was the recent Daily Sip on Sip Northwest Magazine. Editor Erin James selected the wine as her “Daily Sip” adding “the wine itself exudes refreshing aromas of green apple and pear with tart and bittersweet notes, preserved lemon and lime rind are also prevalent and grow in the finish with the crisp acid and pear flavors.”
Portlandia is now available in select Fred Meyer locations in Portland including most of the large stores with wine managers.
