Musar 95-97, Bergstrom 02-07 at Kirk's (Kirk's Place): (Served Blind) Med- gold in the glass. A bitter smell. some oxidative character. Smells almost botrytized, perfumey, some werthers' butterscotch on the palate (my call!), strong tartric/lactic, but not so much malic acid. I like it and it's weird. Vouvray was my guess based on the slight botrytis-like character. Apparently this is the current release! An amazing and unique pinot grigio with skin contact.
'02-'07 Bergström, '95-'97 Musar, and more in Maine (Kirk's Apartment): Canary yellow in the glass with a very interesting and complex nose of different floral tones, beeswax, pollen, and faint citrus tones. In the mouth there is intense acidity followed by flavors of quince, lemon, and wet stone. This wine is so very complex, and difficult to pinpoint. This is unlike any other Pinot Grigo I've ever had. This is a great "wine geek" wine to share with people that are interested in different and obscure wines.
