Winemaker's Notes

The 2004 Pinot Gris shows appealing clarity in the glass with a fine, pale gold hue. Expressive aromas of tropical fruit are followed by subtle floral tones including orange blossom and jasmine. The initial flavors of papaya and pear are full and fresh, complemented by highlights of peach and apricot. This lush fruit is well balanced by crisp acidity that adds structure and supports a pleasingly long finish. The overall impression is refreshing and bright. Served well chilled, this wine will be a delightful aperitif and will also pair well with a wide variety of foods including salmon, lobster or crab in a light cream sauce, curries, and mild blue cheeses.
