Wine Review: He has done it again. Adam Campbell has made another fantastic Pinot Gris. This very pale yellow wine opens with a lovely ripe pear like bouquet with hint of Macintosh apples. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is balanced, slightly creamy, with nicely integrated acidity. The flavor profile is ripe green apple with a touch of minerality and lime. The finish is dry and nicely refreshing. This wine has enough flavor to enhance a meal like baked stuffed sole or a seafood casserole. Serve this wine slightly chilled and enjoy. Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2007 Elk Cove Vineyards Pinot Gris starts out with sweet and unctuous aromatics; pineapple and a touch of honeysuckle, while also giving crispness on the palate with citrus and grapefruit. Yet true to the Elk Cove Vineyards’ style, there is a rich mouthfeel to give a full and satisfying balanced finish. Drink this lovely white wine as an aperitif or with a variety of food pairings from salmon and main-course salads to Asian and Thai influenced dishes.
