Torii Mor Pinot Gris Willamette Valley Reserve 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Mineral, pear and dried citrus peel greet the nose topped with suggestions of ginseng and honeycomb. This is lovely in the mouth, showing a touch of sweetness but remaining airy and deft on the palate. Vibrant acids support citric and sour apple fruit with a nice edge of bitter pear peel. The finish is clean and kind of piercing, more citric than orchard-fruited, but fairly long and ending on a light almond note. This is summer in a glass. I love the balance and elegant scale of this wine. Freaking delicious. 91pts
