Wine Review: This white gold colored Pinot Gris opens with a lemon zest, matchstick, and crushed stone minerality bouquet. with hints of stone fruit and cantaloupe. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is round and a bit lush. The flavor profile is a honey and white peach blend with notes of marzipan and lemon verbena. We also detected hints of flinty stone, golden delicious apple, and spice. The finish is off-dry and subtly fades away. The Tasting Panel would pair this Pinot Gris with braised chicken with apples and calvados. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Pale green color that brings to mind fir tree leaf buds in springtime. Tight, smooth, and sophisticated legs. The nose is agreeably aromatic, harmoniously filled with ripe fruit such as apple, pear, apricot, brioche, vanilla, pistachio charmingly laid over a generous harmony that is not too heavy with a full and delicately perfumed finish. On the palate it is a fine and juicy example of balance and sophistication energized by its wonderfully refreshing finish. Very attractive during its youth but can also be laid down for 3 to 5 years. This will combine well with all sorts of dishes such as sea or freshwater fish, and white meat such as poultry, veal, or pork.
