Unusually fruity for a Pinot Gris, this bursts with quince, hay and lanolin aromas that give way to an intense palate with good weight. While slightly astringent, the mouthwatering finish will provide a good foil for fried calamari.
This wine starts slowly, but a little bit of air really loosens it up, yielding aromas of vegetable oil, apples, and spring flowers. In the mouth, it’s light in body yet crisply flavored, with Granny Smiths dominating. Enough floral elements persist on the palate to provide moderate complexity.
The nose on this Pinot Gris—full of nutty spice and minerals—has instant appeal. On the palate, it offers a combination of subtle spice and fresh fruit, a delicate balance. The wine has curve but is overall clean and spicy. Poised but approachable.
This off-dry Riesling offers plenty of concentrated apple juice flavors accented by a dash of lemon and savory apple pie spice. There’s a hint of petrol throughout that adds a layer of depth, but overall, it’s simple and easy drinking.
A deep golden color and classic Chardonnay fruit and spice aromas, albeit with a touch of sweetness, begin this wine. On the palate, the fruit is fresh and good but lacks the layering and grounding that oak should offer. Overall it’s a good everyday wine that just needs a touch of class to round out the rough edges; food may be the key.
Clean and fresh with hints of underripe mango, fresh apples and lemon, this dry, medium-bodied Chardonnay is pleasantly brisk but hindered by a slightly soapy floral note in the midpalate and bitterness on the finish.
