Philo Ridge continues its Pinot Gris explorations here, made in a similar style to the Marguerite Vineyard version, seeing no oak. The orange blossom aromas are fuller, with a bolt of vanilla, the texture light and crisp. A tad heavier on the palate, it'll still work with oysters, but could also do justice to heartier shellfish dripping in butter.
