Ponzi Pinot Gris Oregon 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

Floral aromas of honeysuckle, gardenia, cotton candy and lemon chiffon lead to complex notes of honeycomb, fresh cut herbs and anise. The textured palate shows honeydew melon, white peach and meringue with bright fresh acidity balanced by a touch of sweetness. -Wine Maker's Notes

Deep and brassy on the nose with stemmy tones and some gentle floral-topped apple notes. A touch sweet on the palate but still remarkably light textured with wonderful acidity. This combines fruit and earthy tones with that gentle supporting sweetness in a rather complete package that turns aromatic in the mouth. This really fills the mouth and while the slight sweetness is noticeable, it is finely balanced by the vibrant acids and a gentle edge of bitterness. All the components meld together on the rather long finish. Very nicely done. I would prefer a little less RS, but this is so deftly balanced it’s tough to argue with the result. 90pts

Bright and generous, offering unusual guava-scented pear flavors that remained focused through the tight finish. Drink now.

Light yellow. Fresh apple and pear aromas are complemented by deeper-pitched peach pit and anise qualities. A spicy, gently sweet midweight, offering lively orchard fruit and guava flavors supported by a refreshingly bitter jolt of quinine on the back. Impressively clean, tangy and dry on the finish, which repeats the pear note. This would go wonderfully with fresh goat cheeses.

A full-bodied, unoaked expression of Pinot Gris with round yellow plums, smoky aromas, and a floral finish. The texture is rich and can easily stand up to any number of fish or white meat dishes.

Bright and lively, brimming with grapefruit-scented pear and floral flavors, lingering easily on the slightly sappy finish. Drink now.

Strikingly spicy, with the scents and flavors of Bosc pears, this textural, racy wine has a bit of refreshing effervescence as well. Subtle traces of citrus, pineapple and Asian pear are woven through, and the bracing acidity sets it up well for richly sauced poultry or pasta dishes.
