External Reviews for Elk Cove Pinot Gris
Fresh and vibrant, with lively melon and pear flavors, finishing on a citrusy note. Drink now.
The 2011 Elk Cove Vineyards Pinot Gris has sweet and unctuous aromatics while showing crispness on the palate with vibrant citrus and grapefruit. True to Elk Cove Vineyards’ style, a rich mouthfeel leads to a full and satisfying balanced finish. Drink this lovely white wine as an aperitif or with a variety of food pairings from salmon and main-course salads to Asian and Thai influenced dishes.
Hints of lemon, green apple and chalk all mingle in this lean gris’s aromatics; the flavors are racy, reflecting the vintage, with a salty zest to the finish that would pair well with prawns roasted in salt.
I’m always impressed by Elk Cove; the quality of this wine far surpasses the price. A strong backbone of clean minerality helps the light citrus, green apple and salty flavors shine. Always my choice over Pinot Grigio; enjoy this in its place — and trust me, you will enjoy it!
