Wildewood Pinot Gris
Wildewood Pinot Gris 2013
Willamette Valley, Oregon

This delectable Pinot Gris is brought to you by Frenchman Laurent Montalieu of Bordeaux. Ooo la la la.

Review: This wine has a lovely pale straw color and aromas of pears, juicy nectarines, soft white flowers, and a hint of citrus. On the palate it is the a bit off dry, lending the wine a soft round body. The presence of brisk acidity keeps the sugar from taking charge -- the balance here is just perfect creating refreshing sip after sip. Fruit flavors of pears and nectarines are quite pronounced, along with some spicy crystallized ginger. The wine has a medium length finish and a stunning freshness.

Food Pairing: Perfect with spicy sushi rolls.

Bottom Line: This Pinot Gris is all I want it to be -- soft, supple, and refreshing.
