Asaf Winery Pinot Gris 2014, Golan Heights, Israel

image

My Rating 95 Points. 
Price $25.

Now, this is the best Pinot Gris I have ever had. Usually, a very plain varietal , but this one is different.

Light yellow in color.

A very aromatic nose of white flowers, lemons, kiwis, minerals, peaches, guava and wet stones.

Medium Plus in body with medium acidity.

Off-dry on the palate with lemons, citrus, oak, cream, tropical fruits, bananas, pineapples and passion fruit.

Short finish with a great mouth feel and some peaches.

What an awesome wine, made from 100% Pinot Gris grapes grown in the Golan Heights in Israel. Nice and balanced. I enjoyed it by itself. Just great to sip on.

14% alcohol by volume.
