2005 Pinot Gris

The 2005 Elk Cove Vineyards Pinot Gris shows continuity of varietal expression with beautiful white flowers, such as honeysuckle, hinting of springtime freshness, while lending notes of crispness with citrus and grapefruit. Yet true to the Elk Cove Vineyards’ style, there is richness in the mouthfeel to give a full and satisfying balanced finish. Drink this lovely white wine as an aperitif or with a variety of food pairings from salmon and main-course salads to Asian and Thai influenced dishes.
