Raptor Ridge 2019 Vineyard Select Pinot Gris

$ 21.99 $ 29.99
Summertime is for Italian Pinot Grigio, but fall's cooler temperatures and cuisine call for the richer and more complex examples you find in Oregon, and Raptor Ridge, one of the region's Pioneers produces an absolutely fantastic one.  Sharp toned at first like and Italian version, it smooths and fattens out with a bit of aeration, bringing up a tasty mix of apple, pear and lemon curd, with notes of vanilla and whipped cream. It was entirely whole-cluster fermented in stainless steel, and retains its richness through a lingering finish.
