This excellent Pinot Gris is barrel fermented in neutral French oak, and is still young enough to show a yeasty freshness to the aromas and in the mouth. There seems to be a touch of residual sugar, or at least a generous fruity sweetness to the palate. Apple and cinnamon flavors complete the picture.
