2013 Lakewood Pinot Gris

Another one from our road trip to the Finger Lakes. Almost golden in color with a mild nose of peaches. On the mid pallet the wine matches the nose with peaches and stone fruit coming through boldly with a hint of sweetness. The wine is medium in length on the finish with some nice minerality living on in the mouth. The wine has some reasonable mouth grip for a Pinot Gris. Very nice wine. I would give it an 89. When we had to choose what wines to bring back this was one that made the cut! We paired it with seared ahi tuna in sesame oil. It went ok, but it wasn’t a match made in heaven. No Rattatouli this time around 🙁 At $13.99 this wine is a bargain, sadly not at the LCBO.

From the winery’s web site:
Our fifth vintage of Pinot Gris greets the senses with exotic aromas of honeydew melon and kumquats. The palate is a mouthwatering mix of peach and green apples, finishing with lingering notes of tart pear. $13.99/BOTTLE ~ $142.68/CASE
