Four Must-Try Oregon Wines at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort
Welcome to the Bandon Dunes Blog! If you made it here we hope it won't be long before we see you on property. During your next stay you will certainly be talking and thinking a lot about the great golf. When it comes time to dine, we thought you might like to know a bit about a few of our Oregon wines to further enhance your experience. The Pacific Northwest is producing some really great wines and we have chosen to highlight four that we think are unforgettable. These wines will give you a true picture of what Oregon is offering to the world.
So plan to sit back after 36 holes on your next trip and enjoy…
Domaine Serene Récolte Grand Cru Chardonnay 2012
This popular Chardonnay is hand harvested, French oak barrel-fermented and a premier expression of world class Chardonnay in Oregon. The 2012 vintage is an elegant example of ripe fruit, honeycomb and custard. Full bodied, lingering finish with perfectly balanced acidity. This wine will compliment many of our entrees or appetizers.
Goodfellow Clover Reserve Pinot Gris 2013
Sometimes you just want a clean, fresh, light wine after a long round of golf. Oregon’s second most prominent wine grape to Pinot Noir is Pinot Gris. Marcus Goodfellow makes a great one with aromas of pear, hazelnut and a slight smokiness from the oak barrels followed by classic lemon on the palate. The acidity is crisp with a complexity that leads to a long finish. Enjoy with roast chicken and any of our seafood dishes.
Bethel Heights Aeolian Pinot Noir 2012
Nowhere outside of Burgundy France is Oregon’s most prestigious grape more at home. Almost every winery in Willamette Valley produces Pinot Noir and Bethel Heights has been at the forefront since the beginning. This 2012 Aeolian is full of blueberry, black cherry and plum with black pepper and spice. The acidity is edgy with smooth tannins that leave you wanting more. Try this iconic Pinot Noir with our Pork Cheeks, Meatloaf or Lamb Shanks.
Penner-Ash Syrah 2013
In addition to world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the southern Rogue Valley produces a wide variety of grapes due to the different terroir types of this region. Columbia Valley also contributes to this powerful Syrah. The aroma is exotic with black fruit, earthy leather and vanilla. On the palate it is full of blackberry, cassis and cocoa. The tannin is smooth with a long finish. Enjoy with any of our steaks, lamb or ribs as well as a cheese board or pizza.
