Fruit Brandy

375 ML


Product Description

We looked for 20 years and finally found the fruit at King Estate near Eugene, Oregon - wonderful, organically grown plums that make a great eau de vie. "The power of the Clear Creek eau de vie of Mirabelle comes ...from its ripe, heady fragrance, its penetrating plum flavor and its lingering freshness." Florence Fabricant, New York Times, August 25, 2004


Varietal: Fruit Brandy

Region: Oregon

Region Description:

This state’s strict wine laws demand that variety wines must contain at least 90% of the named grape (except for Cabernet Sauvignon). The region’s cool climate comes from its proximity to the Pacific and its primary grapes are Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. The latter wine is usually medium bodied, with aromas reminiscent of pears and apples and a surprising depth and complexity. Oregon Pinot Gris is a great food wine, and works especially well with seafood and salmon. Pinot Noir is a more expensive wine here, but that is because it can be such a difficult grape to grow that yields are inevitably low. The best Oregon Pinot Noirs are balanced, fruity and full.
