2016 Pinot Gris

 

The 2016 Pinot Gris is a bright white straw with green hue. It offers up aromas dominated by lifted ripe pear, white peach, white flowers and green apple. A rich textural palate with a long finish and great balance displaying elements of white flowers, cantaloupe, melon and pear. Minerality comes though on the palate.
