The aromatic profile first reveals minerality and lemon rind, but gentle agitation unfolds tropical aromas of mango and passion fruit. The palate is defined by a core of bright acidity, typical of our house style. The flavor profile is exotic, with flavors of Asian and Bartlett pears, green apple, and cantaloupe. Similar to the 2006 Pinot Gris: "Best of tasting. Fresh and vibrant, with great melon fruit, but with a sturdy backbone. Fresh tropical fruits at the top, minerals and serious earthiness at the core -- bravo."
