Hendry 2007 Pinot Gris - 87 pts

Hendry 2007 Pinot Gris (Redwood Creek) Napa Valley - CA

Availability: Private wine shops

Cost: $23-27

Alcohol: 13.8%

Date Tasted: January 19th, 2010

Tasting Notes: Light gold with a touch of brass in appearance, this tasty Pinot Gris from Napa Valley producer Hendry delivers elegant floral notes and crisp, refreshing tastes.

Developing aromas of apples, lime zest, slate and delicate, perfumed flowers on the nose. The palate has crisp, clean acidity with flavours matching the nose. A lovely texture and medium-plus finish complete the experience.

This wine may be hard to get a hold of in BC, but seek it out and enjoy side-by-side with a great local Pinot Gris (one of the Province's signature wines) to compare their unique expression of terroir. Serve chilled with shellfish salad and lighter foods or let it warm up a touch to enjoy alone and fully appreciate the lovely nose. Drink 2010-2013.
