Racy and bright, 2012 Cornerstone Oregon Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, Artist Series is all about drinking now. 91 points - Wine Spectator
The wonderful aromatics, laced with freshcut honeysuckle, will make your mouth water. While joyfully fruity and spicy, this generous wine is barrel fermented to total dryness. This fullbodied white wine is still light on its feet and can really dance!
We did a dance in crafting Balliamo as it is a distinctive blend of 59% marsanne, 33% roussanne and 8% viognier. We cofermented the marsanne and roussanne, then blended in a touch of viognier to give extra texture and complexity.
Our pinot gris is an elegant expression of this versatile varietal with an enticing bouquet of tropical and stone fruit with hints of honey and citrus zest.
