Pinot Gris 2016

Raptor Ridge

Heady aromas of ripe pear, juicy cantaloupe, and a hint of pineapple are seasoned with honey and an intriguing touch of white pepper. Rich and plush at first sip, transitioning to a crisp and palate-cleansing acidity that wraps around sunny flavors of lemon and fresh grated ginger. This food-friendly approachable Gris is consistent with previous vintage styles, and offers some great exotic food pairing options from Thai Curry to Indian Chicken Tikka Masala.

Reviews

  • "90 points. Brilliant straw. Lemon pith, pear skin, quinine and a subtle herbal note on the fragrant nose. Dry, chewy and focused on the palate, offering juicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a spicy touch of ginger. Finishes nervy and taut, displaying very good length and a warm hint of pear eau de vie." (vinous)
