Elk Cove makes one of the most refreshing, crisp and nuanced Pinot Gris in the state. This is an excellent bottle, lively and clean, with mixed fruit flavors of pear, melon, kiwi and white peach. It is concentrated but not heavy or thick; the magic of Adam Campbell's winemaking is his ability to perfectly balance and showcase the exact ripeness of his fruit, leaving in the subtle grace notes. This is a perfectly balanced, nuanced and delicious wine.
