Sweet, rich wine, powerful ripe pear and melon flavors spiced with ginger and an opulent full texture. The wine lets its perfumed character get away with itself, but it’s exuberant for a moment.
The simplest, most approachable of the range of seven Pinot Gris from Lorentz, this Reserve is light, fresh, dry, with a touch of spice and smokiness. There’s good acidity as well as a core of more weighty ripe pear flavors.
Surprisingly soft for a Riesling, which gives the wine an easy attractiveness. Lively, fresh acidity and green apple and melon flavors follow through to the end, perhaps softened by a sense of the wine being off-dry.
