Pinot Gris


Nelson Ranch Pinot Gris 2021

Meadowcroft Wines Nelson Ranch Pinot Gris 2021, Mendocino County, California

Pale lemon in color.

Very aromatic nose of flowers, citrus, lemons, green apples, sweet grapefruits, herbs and spices.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity. Crisp and refreshing.

Dry on the palate with limes, grapefruits, citrus, green apples, bitter herbs, light vegetables, earth and spices.

Tangy finish with spices and almonds.

This is a very tasty Pinot Gris from Mendocino County. Nicely balanced, spicy and tangy.

This Single Vineyard Pinot Gris is showing a really pretty nose.

Feels more like a Californian Sauvignon Blanc.

Easy drinking and good by itself or with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A small production of only 2,200 bottles.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

Domaine Willamette Valley Pinot Gris 2018

Medium lemon with tropical and citrus fruit aromas with spicy perfume notes. Palate shows ripe fruit flavors of peaches, pears, green apples,?citrus zest and gentle smoky notes. Medium finish good balance with acidity ending with ripe fruit character, floral and mineral spice. Has some aging benefit, but good now! — 25 days ago

Savage Grace

De Gris Underwood Mountain Vineyards Skin Contact Pinot Gris 2019

Hard to believe this is Pinot Gris, so much color! Ruby red with an orange tinge, very good clarity with some lees sediment. Citrus note in nose, grapefruit and plum notes in mouth with mineral finish. The winemaker gets Italian plum and pomegranate in this, I can see the former. Really different wine, easy to sip but fair amount of skin tannins, maceration here. Good acid, fresh fruity flavors but subtly so — 11 days ago

Domaine Zind Humbrecht

Alsace Pinot Gris 2019

Similar notes to 7 months ago in September 2021. Comparing with the Pinot Gris from Dry River in Martinborough NZ. I found this to be musky with intense pear and apricot notes. Both were luscious with low acid and both finished dry. Not much in it but I gave the decision narrowly to the Dry River because of it’s brighter new world fruit. — 15 days ago

Dry River

Martinborough Pinot Gris 2016

Pardon the label. A humidity malfunction in one of my wine fridges. Luscious and sweet on the front palate yet finishes dry with diminishing acid and an attractive acidic bitterness on the back palate. Quince, nectarine, peach and apricot with that moreish bitterness. A beautifully made new world Pinot Gris which is dangerously moreish. I will now open an Alsatian Pinot Gris to compare. I’m tipping the Dry River to prevail. — 16 days ago
