Maysara Arsheen Pinot Gris
Maysara
United States - Oregon - Willamette Valley

Arsheen was an Archeamenian Princess during the 500 B.C. Era. She taught Astronomy and was granted the role of winemaker in the palace due to her impeccable palate and knowledge.
A bright expression of fruit right up front, greeting your palate with notes of cut grass on a warm day. The wine is anchored by crisp acidity, but not so much as to overpower a fleeting tease of sweetness that leaves you smiling. Arsheen has a smart, refreshing character that will bestow clarity to a range of preparations of fish, fowl, and pork.

wa88"The 2017 Pinot Gris Arsheen Momtazi Vineyard is delicately scented of gravel dust, green pear and citrus pith with notions of peanut shell. It’s light to medium-bodied, simple and refreshing with pleasant phenolic texture carrying the finish. 1,200 cases produced. - Erin Brooks"
