Ponzi Vineyards 2012 Pinot Gris, Willamette Valley, $17

By on April 18, 2013

Oregon wineThe Ponzis know a thing or two about this variety, having planted their first Pinot Gris vines in 1978. Second-generation winemaker Luisa Ponzi has crafted a delicious white wine with aromas of fruit salad, dandelion blossoms, apple and orange oil. On the palate, it offers juicy flavors of pear, apricot, pineapple and pear, as well as something that reminded us of lemon chiffon. Nice acidity makes this a great pairing with scallops, halibut or grilled tofu.

Rating: Excellent

Production: 13,000
