La Crema 'Monterey' Pinot Gris 2017

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Quite pungent on the nose with a layering of herb stem, citrus pith and yeasty floral notes over a base of melon and pear fruit tinged with a hint of almond. Round and creamy up front, and delivering plenty of soft, fresh pear and apple flavors with supportive acidity popping out on the moderately long finish adding a nice refreshing note to the finale. An interesting wine that starts out rather plush and creamy and ends more tense and edgy. 88pts

Very nicely ripe but a bit bitter from what seems to be overextraction.

Bright and balanced, this wine opens with aromas of fresh white peach, Meyer lemon and subtle oral hints. The lush palate is layered with flavors of ripe pear, baking spice and exotic tropical notes. Mineral undertones are evident in the lengthy finish.
