Best Buy! The stated stylistic approach to Pinot Gris by head winemaker Bob Bertheau is one that “falls between the lighter Italian Pinot Grigio and the richer, rounder Pinot Gris from Alsace.” This does that, starting with a floral nose of sweet herbs, pineapple, pear, Granny Smith apple and lime. There’s a nice pop of acidity on the inviting entry, which is followed by honeydew melon, Uncola, more apple and a finish of starfruit. Suggested fare includes Chicken Alfredo, halibut or scallops influenced by tarragon or anise.
