Duck Pond Cellars Pinot Gris 2013

Pale in color with a nice crisp nose of minerality and citrus notes. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice peach notes along with some minerality to match the nose. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice crisp acidity with the citrus notes lingering nicely. This is a lighter, crisp pinot gris. I would give it an 88-89 or so. Very food friendly.
