Tasting Notes

This straw-colored Pinot Gris leads with pleasing aromas of green apple, pear and white flowers.

Subtle aromas of apple blossoms, melon, and lemon zest follow and make this wine so inviting! In the mouth, this wine is well-balanced and smooth from start to finish. Fruit flavors of apple, apricot, pear and citrus fruit allow the wine to linger on the finish.

Food Pairing

Serve well chilled. This Pinot Gris pairs nicely with a wide variety of foods, including Asian cuisine, cheese plates, salads, fish and shellfish (especially crab cakes).  It also is a nice companion for a summer day at the beach or on the patio.
