2011 Duck Pond Pinot Gris

First up at speed dating for WBC 12 is the 2011 Duck Pond Pinot Gris. Up front I find lots of pear, melon, and floral qualities. In the mouth it’s crisp with nice acidity, lots of pear, melon, and tropical notes.

This would be excellent as an apertif or on a hot humid day like we’ve been experiencing both in Portland and in Virginia. Also might be very good with grilled white fish or cream sauces.
