Pinot Gris a food-friendly Northwest favorite

By on September 18, 2016

Armonéa 2013 Summit Vineyard Pinot Gris, Dundee Hills, $20

armonea-wines-logoThe current releases from Armonéa reflect the talent of winemaker Alberto Alcazar, longtime member of Ken Wright’s team, as well as the heritage of this estate planting at the higher elevations of the Dundee Hills. Despite the age of this bottling, there’s still a fresh and floral presentation of Asian pear, Pink Lady apple and white lavender with jasmine, starfruit and grape Pixy Stix. It takes a clean, bright and crisp angle to the palate, leading with starfruit and lemony flavors as it carries into a rich midpalate of melon. There’s a good core of acidity throughout, finishing with a fun dusting of Pixy dust and pear skin in the finish.
