This wine is a great example of a crisp and bright style of pinot gris. Exhibiting aromas of asian pear, honeydew and citrus blossom, it is overtly fruity yet still complex for this wine variety. The flavors of tangy lime, pear and starfruit linger on the exceptionally long finish. A great "warm weather" wine, it goes with simple appetizers and a wide assortment of seafood any time of the year.
Summer and Benton Lane Pinot Gris paired perfectly. Great wine making lent a perfect spirit to my weekends...buying more for winter seafood pairings...Highly recommended.
This was liked least over King Estate or WillaKenzie Pinot Gris. We were surprised.
I prefer my Pinot Gris to have more body - this was too watery for my taste, although it developed a little more flavor with time.
