2022 Pinot Gris
Remembering wine you’ve had in the past and comparing wine you’re having now is a necessary conversation you have with yourself. It’s how you remember wines you loved and how you judge the quality or likability of new wines. The comparison is the conversation.
The warm flaxen hue belies a Pinot Gris like no other. With a nose of honeysuckle, ripe tree fruit and a hint of minerality, the Middle Ridge 2019 Pinot Gris is true to its Alsatian roots while breaking new ground. Melding ripe Pippen apples and Bartlett pears on the palate, this rich, medium bodied wine will appeal to Chardonnay lovers as its three-month Sur Lie aging in stainless steel provides a creamy finish. Pair with baked brie and fresh cut apples in a picnic basket or fettuccini with an Alfredo sauce for dinner! Experiment and you’ll find many more great pairings.
An artisinal and very aromatic Pinot Gris from the famed Blue's Creek Vineyard in Temecula Valley -- The ONLY clone-52 Alsace vineyard in Temecula Valley that produces very limited harvests.
