A wine that asks not to be taken too seriously. At eight bucks who cares. The color of bleached straw with a pretty necklace. Muted in the nose, but a delight as you sip it, offering up floral and tropical notes. Interestingly, the bouquet shows up in the finish, with field flowers and zesty herbs (camomile, rosemary, thyme). Very bright and refreshing. This will find its way onto the patio this summer.
Drank as part of a Pinot Gris tasting. Covered four others from Washington, Monterey, Italy, and Alsace. I've had Acrobat before so new it would be decent. The field overall was pretty close but this one tied out with the Alsace. Very different wines as the Alsace maintained 24% residual sugar but of the four dry Pinot Gris, this one topped the Kestrel, the Geretto, and the La Crema. Kind of surprised there. Wine was floral and fruity on the nose. Good minerality. Very nicely balanced and as others note, just a very enjoyable easy drinking wine that is great at the price point.
