2012 Ponzi Pinot Gris Rated: Excellent!

Posted Fri, May 10, 2013 in All Posts

The Ponzis know a thing or two about this variety, having planted their first Pinot Gris vines in 1978. Second-generation winemaker Luisa Ponzi has crafted a delicious white wine with aromas of fruit salad, dandelion blossoms, apple and orange oil. On the palate, it offers juicy flavors of pear, apricot, pineapple and pear, as well as something that reminded us of lemon chiffon. Nice acidity makes this a great pairing with scallops, halibut or grilled tofu.
