Winemaker's Notes:

Acrobat Pinot Gris is a translucent, pale straw color. Rich citrus aromas, tropical papaya, pineapple and lychee unfold, with hints of limestone and honeysuckle floral notes. Lemon and lime ripeness on entry, evolving with honeydew melon, golden delicious apple mid-palate, and lingering with notes of kiwi. Light and well-balanced entry, full mid-palate, with a crisp lingering finish.
