Benton-Lane Pinot Gris 2016

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Minty and floral on the nose with light apple blossom fruit. Round on entry and showing nice apple fruit with a gentle edge of bitter herbs and apple seeds. This shows some sweetness and an underlying bitterness, which adds tension to the rich apple palate though the bitterness wins out on the finish. There’s nice acidity on the palate and the sugar extends the fruit on the finish, but this is a touch clumsy and shows some heat. 85pts

Excellent pinot gris from Willamette. Bright, crisp, really nice acidity with lemon peel and a good long finish.

A fragrant, forward wine with a palate-cleansing mix of citrus, pear and white peach. The wine has a spicy lift to the midpalate, and lingers deliciously through a long finish. P.G. Wine Enthusiast. A Pinot Gris wine from Oregon in USA. 2008 Benton Lane Pinot Gris 750ml
