Wine Review: As many readers know, I really like Oregon Pinot Gris and this one from Sineann is another winner that I had the pleasure to enjoy. It is almost clear colored and opens with a Bartlett pear like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is semi-dry, medium bodied, and balanced. The flavor profile is a tasty light apricot with a hint of peach and minerality. The finish is dry and its flavors continue to drift through, prolonging the enjoyment. Staying in Oregon, this wine would pair well with Tillamook sharp cheddar cheese. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: In its youth, the wine is very aromatic, a bit like a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, though with a Pinot Gris twist. Also like an NZ SB, the wine has wonderfully refreshing natural acidity, which should take it far with a variety of foods. In addition to the acidity and aromatics, the Pinot Gris has wonderful depth and complexity of fruit with a terrific texture. The wine goes great with sushi, not a big surprise as PG goes so well with fish.

Organic status: not organic
