Backbone Pinot Gris is comprised of the same vineyards that make up the core, or “backbone”, of the Signature Pinot Gris program. The geographic diversity of these vineyards affords our winemaking team unmatched flexibility in crafting fine wines that are a true expression of Oregon’s terroir in any given vintage. Through meticulous lot selection we are able to adjust accordingly to any curve balls Mother Nature may throw our way. We are pleased to showcase the high quality fruit that would regularly find its way into the Signature blend, and to demonstrate how selection of geographically diverse lots can produce an excellently balanced wine with structured acidity and added layers of complexity.
