Wine Review: This white gold colored Pinot Grigio has just a hue of pink mixed in as well. It opens with a shy faint apple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, soft, and very easy to drink. The flavor profile is a mild apple with gentle minerals and green pear. The finish is dry and pleasant. The panel felt this wine is very food friendly and versatile. We thought it was delicate enough for Dover sole. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The wine appears an intense straw yellow with gold highlights, luminous and appealing. Rich, complex notes of fruit are first to please, with banana, pear, mandarin, and kumquat, as well as pink grapefruit and white peach, and the bouquet ends in a flourish with generous orange blossom honey. The elegance and length of the palate are notable, as is its silky mouthfeel, finely balanced by a crisp acidity and ultra-savoury fruit. Serving Suggestions: Roast poultry, rabbit, and even lamb.
