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

Incredibly good. Bright, lively, tart, and bursting with citrus (orange pith, grapefruit). Some flinty, stoney minerality to finish.
