Wine Advocate 87 points - Production of Adelsheim’s 2012 Pinot Gris dropped by nearly 40% vis-a-vis its 2011 predecessor on account not just of lower yields due to a small set, but also of having jettisoned a major grape contract. Honeydew and apple inflected by rind and pit piquancy offer a juicy and refreshing performance, if neither especially complex nor cepage-distinctive. Plan to enjoy this over the next 9-12 months.  (Oct 2013)

Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Quite tart when it hits the lips, this is nonetheless a dense, flavorful Pinot Gris, tasting of grapefruit, sour orange, apple and green banana. It shows lots of juice and powers through the mid-palate into a fruit-driven finish. (Dec 2013)

Wine maker notes
Pinot gris originated in Burgundy, like the other members of the Pinot family, and has had a long history all over Europe. In recent times, versions from Alsace and northern Italy have been the best known. Oregon winegrowers introduced Pinot gris to New World viticulture and in 45 years the variety has become the principal white wine of Oregon. Adelsheim Vineyard was one of the very first producers of this variety outside of Europe. With this wine, our 29th vintage, our experience shows – we’ve long been acknowledged as producing a reference standard for the “Oregon style”.

Producer
In 1971, Ginny and David Adelsheim purchased the 19 acres that would become Quarter Mile Lane Vineyard. They shared a dream with a handful of families that Oregon’s climate and land could one day produce serious wines. A home was built, vines planted, and in 1978, the first commercial wines were produced. Over four decades, Adelsheim Vineyard grew up with Oregon’s wine industry. Our passion has only gained strength as our early dreams have become reality. Much of the credit is due to a team of talented, driven professionals who have joined us. They know that raising the bar with every growing season requires ceaseless attention to detail – from managing the crop size vine by vine to controlling 180 individual Pinot noir fermenters – while staying focused on the big picture. At our core, we are about crafting wines in a style consistent with our place. We combine traditional and state-of-the-art techniques to produce wines that show elegance, complexity, balance, and richness in their aromas, flavors, and texture. In 1994, Lynn and Jack Loacker became co-owners of our company. They helped us re-envision our company so that we could become financially viable while not losing sight of our dreams. That financial stability has allowed us to expand our vineyard holdings in the Chehalem Mountains (and beyond) and to build a winery in which the envisioned quality can be realized. As our company traverses its fifth decade, there will be changes. The management team will evolve with younger talents taking over the leadership of the company. The ownership may evolve as well, but it is the commitment of the Adelsheims and Loackers that our company will remain independent and family-owned. Having reached the quantitative capacity of our facilities, our growth will be focused on ever-higher quality – in our wines themselves, in our customers’ experiences with our wines, and in our service. It is our goal to be known as one of Oregon’s great wine producers. We will accomplish that by continuing to invest in great sites and talent. We will be leaders in our industry, becoming a sustainable yet genuine force for economic and social growth in our state. We will collaborate with our industry colleagues to find innovative ways to market our region and its wines to the world so they have a global presence. We are still true believers in the unique pleasures of Pinot noir and the amazing white wines of Oregon’s north Willamette Valley. The singular climate and the inimitable sites of this place are what allow us to create these memorable wines. It falls to us to explain their seriousness to the world
