A to Z Pinot Gris has intense aromatics of lime blossom, nectarine, tangerine, melon, wet stone and guava that build into aromatics of nutmeg, Bing cherries and kiwi. The palate is concentrated, ripe and succulent with wonderful lush fruit and mineral notes. The concentration is framed by ripe acidity that gives lift to the wine as it moves to the mid-palate. The flavors on the mid-palate echo the aromas with a deeper not of honey. The wine moves seamlessly into a finish that goes on for some time before finishing crisply. The lasting impression of the wine is great purity and intensity balanced by wonderful juiciness and succulence.
Wine Enthusiast(2015 Vintage) The price of this all-occasion white wine keeps creeping up, but the quality stays high, even as production levels push toward six figures. It’s lightly spritzy, pale lemon in color, and tastes remarkably like grapefruit, with a gentle dusting of sugar. As fresh as can be, it should be drunk slightly chilled, paired with something like chicken breasts in a citrus sauce.
