Joleté Wines



Riesling, Pinot Noir, & Cabernet Sauvignon






2017 PG bottle


2017 Pinot Gris, $19

Harvested from the high-elevation loess, wind-blown silt soils of Washington's Columbia Valley, beautifully expressing the character of the 2017 vintage. The fruit and minerality of this dry Pinot Gris is complemented by the splash of Viognier added to the blend for complexity, bouquet and texture.

90-POINTS, Wine Enthusiast: "Appealing aromas of freshly cut yellow apple and melon lead to full-feeling, plentiful pear flavors. The sense of texture heightens the appeal." - Sean Sullivan, 2019

2015 PG bottle


2015 Pinot Gris, sold out

Harvested from two of Oregon's top old-vine vineyard sources – Olenik Vineyard (Chehalem Mountains AVA) and Lazy River Vineyard (Yamhill-Carlton AVA). The Joleté Pinot Gris was pressed and tank fermented in September 2015, having 10% oak-fermented Olenik fruit added to the final blend for desired texture. The resulting wine shows a natural balance of citrus, fruit, and minerality indicative of its AVA sources, with a focused acidity that drives the apricot and melon character through the finish.

90-POINTS, Wine Enthusiast Editors' Choice: "This marries New World ripeness to Euro styling. Plump apple and pear fruit carries highlights of bee pollen and honey, with excellent grip and length." - Paul Gregutt, 2016

2012 Riesling bottle


2012 Riesling, sold out

The 2012 Joleté exemplifies the distinction of Anderson Valley Riesling. Sourced from the German Geisenheim clone on 30-year-old vines, this completely dry wine was stainless steel aged surlee for 6 months, with no residual sugar.

TASTING NOTES: Aromatically, the 2012 Joleté Anderson Valley Riesling opens with a fresh floral bouquet of honeysuckle, apple, Asian pear, and orange zest. On the palate, pear, quince, and white peach transition to honeydew melon on the mid-palate. Completely dry, the finish is crisp and clean with firm acidity, yet the wine’s texture is soft, round, and lingers with hints of crème brulee. Drink now through 2016.
