Bouquet:

This Pinot gris had tart aromas that made my mouth water as I took in the smells. Along with citrus notes of freshly peeled lemon rinds, it had notes of lemongrass, asian pears, and wet stone. The minerality practically jumped out of my glass!

Palate:

I think the best way to describe this wine is as a Pinot gris with a high acid backbone. Too often this varietal doesn’t have enough acidity so it’s really wonderful to find one that does! I found flavors of tart citrus– white grapefruit, lemons, and limes. Plus lemon and lime zest, along with lemongrass. As it warmed, I detected popsicle stick and wildflower honey. The wine was crisp and clean with a long, tart finish, and delivered so much bang for the few bucks you’ll pay for it!

Food pairing suggestions:

Drink this Pinot gris with any type of seafood. The mineral and citrus notes would pair beautifully with mussels, fish tacos, or creamy shrimp pasta. Curried carrot soup, Tandoori chicken patty sandwiches and teriyaki tofu are just a few of the many dishes I’m certain would be great with this wine.
