I am excited to present an evening showcasing the elegant wines of Cristom Vineyards, one of the iconic pinot noir producers from Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Cristom Vineyards was established over a quarter of a century ago as a collaboration between an engineer and a biochemist who each possessed a deep-rooted respect for the land, the natural winemaking process, and pinot noir. More than 25 years later, second-generation winegrower and owner Tom Gerrie leads winemaker Steve Doerner in tending Cristom’s vineyards, and producing elegant, dynamic wines, recognizable by a hallmark style of whole-cluster fermentation by native yeasts. With minimal intervention during the winemaking process, Tom, Steve and their team strive to craft wines that are an honest recording of both the vineyard and the vintage, producing the ultimate expressions of the stellar fruit in the Willamette Valley. As one can probably surmise, Steve Doerner previously served time in Burgundy, working for the likes of Domaine Dujac; thereby adding a Burgundian
sensitivity to the wines at Cristom.
We are pleased to be able to present almost the entire range of the Cristom pinot noirs including three out of the four estate Pinot Noirs – Eileen, Jessie and Marjorie, named for Gerrie family matriarchs. We are also excited to present two older vintages of Marjorie and Jessie alongside the recent vintages we will be enjoying. We are grateful to Cellarmaster for its partial sponsorship of the wines for the evening.
Our dinner will be held at Origin Grill & Bar, at the Shangri-la, which is inspired by the origin of flavours, travel adventures and Singapore’s illustrious history of bountiful trade, colonial charm and tropical splendour. Origin Grill showcases fresh, authentic flavours from curated, unique and quality-driven ingredients. Hailing from Sydney, Australia, Chef de Cuisine, Heidi Flanagan crafts courses from land and sea.
