Holding up, but losing some crispness. Still has a soft mouth feel without the heaviness of overoaking. Amazing with Indian food - the cumin and coriander blend with the citrus of the wine to create an unbelievable new taste. A great patio wine, but sturdy enough to put with a spicy meal. It's fading, so drink it if you have it.
White fruit and light citrus nose and flavor, rather delicate, not tart. Short finish with notes of arugula -- sort of a built-in palate cleanser. Paired nicely with a dinner of wild-caught salmon, brussel sprouts, and baked yams. Simple and pleasant, but with more complexity than most PG.
Fresh, clean aromas of grass and lemon. Palate shows minerally apricots and pears, short apricot finish. Very attractive up front, slightly marred by some flabbiness, and the short back end. Having said that, this is still a very nice wine. My guess is that this isn't going anywhere and the time to drink is now.
FWIW, this goes very well with tomato sauce and cheese.
For my palate, this is such a fantastic new world white wine. Generous peach and pear aromas and flavors. A touch of crisp acidity and an overall flavor profile that's utterly enjoyable. Great wine to cool down a spicy dish. Highly recommended.
Nearly clear. Key lime on the nose. Lemon chiffon and mild minerality on the palate. Nice mix of acid and minerality. Dry with a short finish. Went well with and in a lemon garlic cream sauce with shrimp over pasta.
Practically clear with hint of yellow color. Delicate nose of stone and faint apple. Light/medium body on a dry (not bone dry) palate with medium acidity. Flavor of citrus mélange with some ripe apple and nice minerality. Medium finish fading to mild citrus rind (think gentle Alsatian). ...Two days later and appealing structure still intact. Simple wine but somewhat distinctive for this grape that in other hands seems to offer so little.
Closed in aroma of grass and lemon. Full bodied, but not heavy, palate of minerals and pears with a touch of honey Very delicate by Pinot Gris standards, especially for New World Pinot Gris. Very pleasant, delicate, and it leaves you something to think about. Nice effort.
Drank this one night after the King Estate Pinot Gris Acrobat and found them quite comparable, though this was a bit tastier. Grassy and lively on the tongue -- actually both my wife and I thought this wine (particularly compared to the Acrobat) tasted like it had a bit of effervescence to it. Great at this price point!
Pale and straw in the glass. The nose revealed fresh cut grass, green apple and lemon zest with a tiny bit of wet stones. Light bodied in the mouth it was bursting with acidity and just a touch of sweet. The palate was more of the nose with green apples, lemon zest and grapefruit surrounded with some minerality. Someone else said it was a little tart at first and I agree with that. I really nice and well balanced Pinot Gris that is a very solid drinker. 50+5+12+16+7=90
Very pale straw color. Cantaloupe stands out on the otherwise grassy nose. Grapefruit, green apple, and under-ripe peach on the palate. Smooth, medium length finish. Started out a little too tart, but softened up in the glass and grew on me.
A medium-bodied wine with good texture. Ample fruit without being over the top. We were looking for a wine that wasn't a mouthful (like a chardonnay) or too crisp (like a sauvignon blanc) and this was an excellent choice. I plan to buy more for the holidays.
