"Leesy and bright, this forward gris leads with aromas of ripe apple and peach, accented by a bit of nutmeg spice. It's flavors are bright and broad at once; the texture is mouthfilling and rich, yet the wine retains a fresh, focused line from lively acidity. "
Wine & Spirits
"Lovely pale gold hue. Finely tuned scents of pear, apple and crisp green grape. Crisp and fruity with delicate flavors of pear and a hint of peach framed by ample acidity. Long, satisfying finish."
The Wine News
"The 2008 Pinot Gris Estate Grown is a bit more concentrated. It features aromas and flavors of tangerine zest, apricot, and white peach leading to a dry, crisp, flavorful effort that should also drink well for another 2 years."
"WillaKenzie's Pinot Gris is fleshier and rounder than the elegant, delicious Pinot Blanc, and makes a fine companion wine. The soft entry tastes of Asian pear, yellow apple and a bit of green pineapple. It firms up as it rolls across the palate, with excellent concentration and focus. "
