Mason Cellars Three Pears Pinot Gris 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

88 Points, Wine Enthusiast Nestled within the Sacramento Delta, our Three Pears Pinot Gris is sourced from an ideal climate for producing crisp, aromatic white wines. The heavy maritime influence cools the afternoon heat with consistent winds, moderating temperature and allowing for clean fruit flavors and great acid retention. Built on the levy system, soils are fertile but well drained tending to produce balanced vines; canopies with great exposure for subtle nuanced flavors. Goes well with lean, simple dishes such as: Seafood: Light fish, oysters Meat: Chicken, ham, veal Other: Light pasta, ravioli, Italian antipasti

Mason Cellars is a family owned and operated winery founded in l993 by winemaker Randy Mason and his wife Megan. Randy has been crafting outstanding wines for more than 30 years in the Napa Valley. Mason has long been recognized by the wine industry as being one of the best sauvignon blanc producers in the country. With the creation of their first Mason Sauvignon Blanc in l996, Mason began to develop his own Sauvignon Blanc house – by adding another sauvignon blanc label – Pomelo, and this past year a new Mason Reserve Sauvignon Blanc. With the recent opening of their new tasting room in downtown Napa, Mason Cellars Oxbow Tasting Room, one can more readily sample the Mason collection of fine wines. To complete the wine list of Mason, they continue to feature their Mason Merlot and Mason Cabernet Sauvignon. In addition to showcasing the Mason wines, come and enjoy the warm, casual atmosphere of their tasting room where Megan has gathered select paintings and specialty goods for their Mason Mercantile. Mason Cellars Oxbow Tasting Room is the perfect place to explore the wine region beginning at the Napa River Oxbow District. On First Street, locals know it's easy walking distance from downtown and the Oxbow Public Market. A delightful place to pause and indulge, drop by from Thursday to Monday for a complimentary wine tasting of all our current releases. Mason Cellars Oxbox Tasting Room is located at 7l4 First Street, Napa. Read less

Great for the price. Fruity & light.
