Description
 
Established in 1992, Cristom has been under the control of founder and owner Paul Gerrie and winemaker Steve Doerner since their foundation. Paul emphasises the Cristom philosophy of “letting the land make the wines’, while Steve believes his role is to optimise what nature provides. The continuity of personnel, combined with the ownership of prime vineyard sites, has allowed Cristom to produce impressive Pinot Noirs, particularly the single vineyard cuvees which are named in honour of matriarchs of the Gerrie family.

Comprised in this vintage of not quite 100% estate fruit and rendered in tank, the Cristom 2010 Pinot Gris as usual underwent full malo-lactic conversion. Some of the peachy fruit; rich underlying nuttiness; and smoky, spicy notes (which, as Doerner points out, could readily be mistaken for oak influence) that I have always considered part of this cepage’s typicity (though they seem to be absent in most Oregonian renditions) are allied to subtle creaminess (but without any overtly lactic character) and retain plenty of juicy refreshment all the way through a lip-smackingly lingering finish. This ought to prove delightfully versatile over the next couple of years (though few if any bottles, I suppose, are likely to survive year one unconsumed). WA88 (2010)
