Ponzi Vineyards Pinot Gris Willamette Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes A beautiful nose of pear, clove, vanilla bean and floral notes of almond and orange blossom lead to a broad mouth showing mid-palate flavors of honeydew melon, fresh quince and sweet lemon. The balanced finish lingers with a golden apple sweetness.

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.
