Winemaker's Notes:

Crisp, bright flavors have always been the hallmark of Adelsheim's Pinot gris. This 2008 shows its usual lovely floral bouquet. Bosc pear, peach and Winesap apple flavors dominate the fruit profile, with a bit of spiciness. This wine has incredible versitility, pairing with everything from very spicy foods (Thai) or strongly flavored foods (such as ceviche) to the more classic poached salmon, shellfish, bisques, and a traditional oven-roasted turkey
