Wine Review: This pale straw colored Pinot Gris from the Ponzi opens with a mild pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced and easy going. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused Bosc pear with hints of white pepper. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity are nicely refreshing. This wine is very food friendly and would pair well with many dishes. I would pair it with steamed mussels in a garlic wine broth or baked Dover sole. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: Aromas of marzipan, key lime, white tea and magnolia precede the full mouth with hints of lemon meringue, verbena, and white pepper. The juicy acidity keeps the perfect balance of lush fruit and bright freshness.
