Eyrie pioneered this variety and continues a half century later to break new ground. It's aromatically complex and elegant, with compelling flavors of waxy apple, grapefruit and star fruit. The wet stone acidity keeps it lively and fresh, but based on the winery's history, this is a Pinot Gris that can age quite well. Drink now to 2030 and perhaps beyond.
