By on May 16, 2014

kramer-vineyards-estate-pinot-gris-bottleA cool vintage and a harvest of 20-year-old vines at 19.6 Brix sets the table for this dramatically crips and food-friendly version of Oregon’s signature white grape. Aromas hint at honeydew melon, Gala apple, poached pear, lime and banana shave ice, while the drink brings brightness with lime juice and lime zest before a finish of baked Bosc pear. It is easy to imagine this served with chicken or pasta in an alfredo sauce.
