Wine Review: This pale straw colored Pinot Gris opens with inviting aromas of peach, pear, white flowers and tropical notes. On the palate, it is medium bodied, fruity and displays brisk acidity. The flavor profile is peach, citrus and honey with hint of minerality. There are nice melon notes in the lingering finish. I would enjoy this wine with Thai food. – Mark Pharo
Winemaker Notes: Juicy. Fresh. Enticing. “White peach, ripe pear and jasmine scents. Meyer lemon, yellow apple and honeycomb flavors. Freshness, juicy acidity and a long, delicate finish. Pair with pineapple coconut creme brulee.
