This is an interesting Single Vineyard Pinot Gris from Oregon State.
Pinot Gris is usually simple and easy drinking, yet this is showing more complexity than I expected, with a bigger mouthfeel.
Needs 20 minutes of airtime to open up properly.
I really liked the mouthfeel, as it coats the whole mouth with a brief touch of sweetness.
A good wine to sip by the porch, and good for parties too.
Good by itself or with food. Easy drinking and will pair nicely with salads. I paired it with meats, cheeses and light appetizers.
12.8% alcohol by volume.
