28 Sep With summer hanging on, here’s a good white for chilling (and chillin’)…2016 WillaKenzie Pinot Gris
Hang in there, summer. Stay stubborn. Don’t leave too soon!
Here in Oregon, summer has already overstayed its seasonal welcome. The calendar says fall but with five 80-plus degree days in a row, it doesn’t feel like fall at all.
It does feel like chilled white wine time.
WillaKenzie’s 2016 Pinot Gris is one to try during summer’s last stand. With moderate acidity and pleasing fruit flavors (ripe apple & pear), it works either with food or on its own as an aperitif.
I know some like their pinot gris super-cold. They might be tempted to chill this to the extreme. But that’s not recommended. If it’s too cold, you’ll won’t be able to taste the subtle fruit notes, one of the hallmarks of a good pinot gris.
