Ponzi Vineyards Pinot Gris 2010
The nose showed green apple with light lemon, grasses and salty cheese rind. On the palate, it was light with a hint of sweetness and a spritz of effervescence, showing citrus fruits and young white peach. The finish was clean and refreshing with mineral tinged white fruit left lingering on the palate.
Soft aromas of pears, Light wheat color with a mild citrus taste. Mild acidity shows up quickly. This was a nice wine with our roast pork meal.
External Reviews for Ponzi Vineyards Pinot Gris
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.
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.
Ponzirsquo;s elegant and complex Pinot Gris is still showing a little bottle shock; itrsquo;s got some spritzy character and is not quite resolved. Give this wine some more bottle age (or decanting) and it breathes open, with pineapple, pear and citrus. There is plenty of acid and a nice foundation of mineral also.
Bright and generous, offering unusual guava-scented pear flavors that remained focused through the tight finish. Drink now.
"A floral nose with lime zest and green apple, the mouth is ripe melon, clove and citrus finishing with a perfect play between sweetness and acidity." - Winemaker Luisa Ponzi
