Winemaker's Notes:

The 2011 Acrobat Pinot Gris is pale straw in color with golden highlights. Aromas of grapefruit, honey suckle, lime zest and fenugreek. Flavors of honeydew, white grapefruit, fresh pear and golden delicious apple, with floral notes and spice. On the palate, it is viscous and crisp, with a hint of sweetness and good length.
