2008 Pinot Gris
AmericanWinery.com is pleased to provide you with Winery-Direct information.
This classic Pinot Gris was hand-harvested from the Willow Crest Vineyard in Yakima Valley. It has aromas of honeysuckle and tangy fruit flavors of apple and lemon zest. It pairs well with salads, seafood and lighter fare.
- 750 ml (Standard Bottle): 335
This was a classic vintage – the way it used to be! In other words, warm during the summer and then cool during September & October. The result is a ripe, crisp wine that explodes with flavors of Granny Smith apples and honeysuckle.
