A double bonus here—a price drop and what is certainly the best vintage yet for this widely available Pinot Gris. Outstanding depth of flavor focuses on apple, pear and melon fruits. There's an appealing streak of vanilla custard, with a lush mouthfeel and plenty of detail right on through the generous finish.
