Wine Review: This pale straw colored Pinot Gris from Alsace opens with a Bosc pear bouquet with a hint of cream soda. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mineral infused mild Bosc pear with hints of lemon-lime and white pepper. The finish is dry and refreshing. This is a very nice Pinot Gris and it would pair nicely with broiled sea scallops. Enjoy - Ken
