Red Rooster Winery 2011 Pinot Gris
This pinot gris has a soft, pretty nose, with green apple, melon, pear and citrus notes. There's also aromatic hints of grapefruit and mineral. It is consistent on the palate, with a mild bitterness and a little heat on the back palate. This is a good expression of a slightly different style of pinot gris.
