Vista Hills 2012 Orange Pinot Gris (Willamette Valley)

An interesting experiment, this Pinot Gris is fermented on the skins, then aged in neutral oak for six months. It's a pale rose color, and the skin contact has resulted in some quite puckery phenolics. The barrel aging helps round it out, though it remains almost sour, with light, astringent strawberry fruit.
