Willakenzie Pinot Gris

Reviewed By

Country: United States

The Willakenzie Pinot Gris is a very special wine. Despite the high alcohol content (14.5% for the 2005) it is a classic of its type and one of the finest example of this style of wine to come out of the United States.
Tasting this wine blind you could be forgiven for thinking that it was from Alsace. It is quite 'dense' on the palate but also very clean and the long finish is very attractive. We get overtones of apple and melon aromas. This is not a wine for light summer drinking, but a serious, complex food wine that should be lingered over and thought about!
It is fermented in stainless steel tanks.
We have enjoyed this lovely pinot gris at Restaurant Zoe in 2nd Avenue in Seattle.
