Winemaker's Notes:

Acrobat Pinot Gris is an extremely approachable wine and a versatile food companion. It has been consistently praised for it's value, delivering great quality for a modest price.

The color is a pale straw with golden highlights. On the nose there is melon, green apple, citrus, spice and tropical fruit. On the palate there is tangerine, lemon, kiwi and pear. This wine has a crisp entry with nice balance between acidity and residual sugar, round and full mid-palate, with a clean and refreshing finish.
