Best Buy! Pinot Gris is a hot grape in Washington state, where production has surpassed Oregon in recent vintages. Here’s a delicious and affordable example by one of Walla Walla’s older producers. This opens with aromas of yellow rose petal, Granny Smith apple and slate, followed by bright flavors of nectarine, Asian pear and melon. It is loaded with upfront acidity and should pair beautifully with shellfish.
Production: 5,000 cases
