Wine Review: Run to the store and buy this wine before it is gone. The bouquet of this wine is very aromatic with a scent of lime. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is quite tasty. It is extremely well balanced and mouth watering. I envision this wine as a fine complement to any chicken or fish dish. The wine is quite refreshing. Enjoy it, I did. - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2005 Elk Cove Vineyards Pinot Gris shows continuity of varietal expression with beautiful white flowers, such as honeysuckle, hinting of springtime freshness, while lending notes of crispness with citrus and grapefruit. Yet true to the Elk Cove Vineyards’ style, there is richness in the 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.
