2012 Winter’s Hill Vineyard Dundee Hills Pinot Gris

14.5% alc., 800 cases, $17. Whole cluster pressed, fermented in stainless steel tanks at low temperature, no malolactic fermentation. · Pale golden yellow color and clear in the glass. I was drawn to this wine immediately, with its interesting aromas of fresh cut apple, tropical fruits, wax and a hint of lily. Pleasing on the slightly creamy palate, with flavors of baked pear and apple, leading to a palate cleansing finish. The wine shows a slight salinity to match well with oysters. Score: 90.
