Waterbrook Winery 2017 Pinot Gris, Columbia Valley, $15

By on May 12, 2018

Best Buy! John Freeman and his winemaking team at Waterbrook in Walla Walla have grown their Pinot Gris program by more than a third in recent years. Canyon Vineyard Ranch, an estate site in the Yakima Valley east of Prosser, Wash., is the traditional resource for this food-friendly Pinot Gris, and the style remains constant as starfruit, Bosc pear and Golden Delicious apple aromas and flavors are capped by a nibble of almond skin. Suggested pairings range from pork loin and stuffed peppers to fresh oysters, steams mussels, clam chowder and shrimp.
