Tasting Notes: A large piece of Howling Bluff's new expanded portfolio is this clean, crisp and aromatic Pinot Gris that employs a let-the-fruit-speak approach resulting in a fruit-forward wine with ripe orchard fruit on the pleasant nose and tangy palate supported by light tropical and citrus fruit notes and a faint susurrus of minerality. Intensity, balance and length are all well executed. Enjoy this Pinot Gris chilled while you're soaking in sunlight or pair it with a cold salmon and goats cheese spinach salad. Drink now-2014.
