As the weather warms many of you will transition from hearty reds to lighter and refreshing white wines. Besides Pinot Noir, our friends in Oregon’s Willamette Valley grow and craft some really nice acid-driven Chardonnays and Pinot Gris. The 2012 Aspen Pinot Gris (SRP $18) from Youngberg Hill is medium-bodied and fresh with a vibrant tropical core that’s accented by aromas of ripe pear and muted mineral tones. The palate offers yellow-fleshed fruits framed by a slight brackish quality with a supple mouth-feel and crisp, citrusy acidity that carries through from start to finish. Overall, a delightfully pleasing and food-friendly wine that’s ready for spring or summertime sipping. Approximately 107 cases of this wine were produced. Region: McMinnville, Oregon. (Other info: ABV 13.7%, 100% Stainless, screw cap enclosure.)

    Here in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia we have had the William Fevre paired wonderfully with Chinese style steamed Garoupa and the Greywacke was magnificent with day fresh sashimi. O it can be hard in the tropics...
