Crisp, bright flavors have always been the
hallmark of Adelsheim Pinot gris. In this
2008, you'll find hints of papaya, apples and
pears. It pulls off the difficult feat of providing
a gentle creaminess that lends a rich, mouthfilling
texture and long finish, yet still
impressing as a wine that's crisp and clean.
Try it with mildly spicy foods (such as ceviche),
not so mildly spicy Thai cuisine, rich fish
entrees, and even classic oven-roasted fowl.
I give it 5 stars for it's category - Oregon Pinot Gris. It delivers exactly what you want from Pinot Gris - ripe stone fruit, a touch of spice and a creamy texture that is still crisp & dry. Not sweet at all, but very ripe. Finishes with clean acidity.
